Q. I am setting up an AS/400 E35 and want to perform some special routines at IPL time. I seem to remember something about an object that could be translated into CL source-along the lines of "startup." Is there actually a command that will perform the translation from object form? I called IBM reps, but they said that they were unaware of any such routine.
If I am losing my mind, hey, that's no big deal; but if not, I would really appreciate any help I could get. Thanks a bunch.
A. Yes, there is a way to accomplish what you are trying to do. There is a system value QSTRUPPGM that references the CL program that runs during an IPL. The default is QSYS/QSTRUP. You can change this value to reference any program name or *NONE. If you would like to pattern your changes after the default program, you can run the Retrieve CL Source (RTVCLSRC) command on QSYS/QSTRUP to convert the object into source code.
