This section provides introductory, conceptual, and guidance information about how to use OS/400 application programming interfaces (APIs) with your application programs.
Qshell is a command environment based on POSIX and X/Open standards made up of the shell interpreter (or qsh) and QSHELL utilities (or commands)
The integrated file system is a part of OS/400© that lets you support stream input/output and storage management similar to personal computer and UNIX© operating systems
Various examples of using SQL on IBM system i - DB2 tables. This section includes both stand alone examples and embedded within SQLRPGLE & CLLE using QSHELL.
When I was a young programmer, there existed a group of people known as Operators.... They were responsible for keeping the OS updated, Monitoring the system for errors, printing
Data queues are a type of system object (type *DTAQ) that you can create and maintain using OS/400 commands and APIs. They provide a means of fast asynchronous
Many examples/tips to make programming on the IBM system i much more enjoyable. These tips written in RPGLE, SQLRPGLE, CLLE are free to use and modify as see fit.
Subfiles are specified in DDS for a display file to allow you to handle multiple records, same type on the display. A subfile is a group of records read/written to a display.
This program reads multiple outqueues from an Iseries table. Then performs some action on the spooled files. Uses IBM system

Simple example of a program displaying a window showing job information of the person locking the record the program is
We have put together a program that will enable you to send Iseries reports to anyone you wish via email.
This is a simple subprocedure example. It requires two parameters, an input text string and an output text string. If
One of the more powerful tools for iSeries programmers is the user space. Many IBM list APIs use a user
