  • Very noob question - Running programs on IBM i

    I just got access to the pub400.com system and I'm exploring. I used this command I found on this forum:

    wrklib *all

    and found a library full of AS/400 games. How do I run them? On the "Display Library" screen; there is no "Execute" option.

    Also looking for any good beginner i resource recommendations.

    Thanks!

    Dave

    btw I tried attaching a screenshot but the forum wouldn't let me.

    Try:
    CALL library_name/program_name

      You may need to add the library to your library list also.

      ADDLIBLE - Add Library list Entry
      or
      EDTLIBL - Edit library list

        The programs might be intended to be called by commands. If there are any *CMD objects in the library, type the command name on the command line and press F4 to see if there are any parameters. But first, use the ADDLIBLE command to add the library to your library list, so you don't have to keep typing the library name.

        In general, it's a good idea to always press F4 when you are using a command that you are not familiar with. In case there is help for the command, while you are in the F4 screen, move your cursor to the top section where there are just spaces, and press F1 to see the help. You can also press F1 on an individual parameter to get help just for that parameter.

        Good luck!
