    How to validate date

    How to validate date in RPG400? Is there any opcode, especially in RPG/400 not in ILE.

    RPG400 was introduced with the AS/400 back in 1988. It was nothing more than RPG III from the S/38 with a couple of minor quirks.

    Between 1988 and V3R1 (whenever that was - 1994?) a small number of extra features were added to the langauge but nothing much.

    With V3R1 IBM introduced RPG IV (aka ILE RPG) which has the 112 spec length and the extended factor 2 etc. While it was stupidly referred to as ILE RPG/400 in some quarters of IBM those of us involved in the launch always favored RPG IV for the simple reason that RPG IV programs do not have to be ILE programs. In fact, the vast majority (compiled with PDM 14 and standard defaults) are not really ILE programs at all but rather they are fake OPM programs.

    V3R2 introduced subprocedures and off we went!


    End of brief history lesson

    I didnt know that I thought RPG400 was with the extended factor one and factor two making the source files 112 instead of the RPGIII which was a length of 92. Im not saying thats correct Im just saying thats what I thought.

    I agree with the waste of time statement I cant even remember how to use a limits file.

    code would look something like this.....remember leap year......and youll have to add logic for # of days by month. I didnt do that this is just a very simple example
    PHP Code:
    RPG400/RPGIII

         I            DS
         I                                        1   80WKDAT8
         I                                        1   20WKCENT
         I                                        3   40WKYEAR
         I                                        5   60WKMNTH
         I                                        7   80WKDAY
          
    *
         
    C           WKDAT8    IFEQ *ZEROS
         C                     MOVEL
    'Y'       ERROR
         C                     
    ENDIF
          *
         
    C           WKCENT    IFNE 19
         C           WKCENT    ANDNE20
         C                     MOVEL
    'Y'       ERROR
         C                     
    ENDIF
          *
         
    C           WKDAY     IFGT 31
         C                     MOVEL
    'Y'       ERROR
         C                     
    ENDIF
          *
         
    C           WKYEAR    IFEQ *ZEROS
         C                     MOVEL
    'Y'       ERROR
         C                     
    ENDIF
          *
         
    C           WKMNTH    IFGT 12
         C                     MOVEL
    'Y'       ERROR
         C                     
    ENDIF
          *
         
    C                     MOVE *ON       *INLR
          
    *-----------------------------------------------------
          *  
    INDATE 8 CCYY/MM/DD
          
    *-----------------------------------------------------
         
    C           *INZSR    BEGSR
         C           
    *ENTRY    PLIST
         C                     PARM           INDATE  8
         C                     PARM           ERROR   1
          
    *
         
    C                     MOVE INDATE    WKDAT8  80
          
    *
         
    C                     ENDSR

    Um - Jamie - RPG/400 _is_ RPG III.

    There is no native way to test (or do anything else with) real dates in RPG III (RPG/400) - iSeries network in it's previous guise of News/400 published a series of date routines by Paul Conte under the title "The last Date Routines You'll Ever Need" or something very similar. Try searching the www.iSeriesNetwork.com and see if they are still there. Google might find them somewhere too.

    Why on earth is ANYONE writing code in RPG III. What a total bloody waste of time and energy.
