Free-Format: Using C Functions in RPG IV

Integrating C functions with normal RPG IV gives you the best of both worlds.

jim_martinWritten by Jim Martin

Editor's Note: This article is an excerpt from the MC Press book Functions in Free-Format RPG IV.


Most RPG programmers don't know the C programming language and avoid technical articles and discussions that have anything to do with it. In fact, I will go so far as to say that many RPG programmers get a little “testy” when someone says that C is better than RPG, since it is newer, uses functions, etc., etc., etc. I have to admit that I was not interested in the C language when it was first available. I was busy on a midrange IBM platform that didn’t even have a C compiler.

I'll be the first to admit that I'm aging. How old am I? Well, that's a secret that I may divulge at the end of the article. But with age comes organization. Work days become hectic, and sometimes I need a reminder of what I'm supposed to do next. I'm sure some of your users need reminders at times too. That's where the concept of this article started.
