ILE RPG Built-in-functions. %ABS – Absolute Value of Expression. %ADDR – Get Address of Variable. %ALLOC – Allocate Storage. %CHAR – Convert to. In addition, under OS/ V3R2 and V3R7 the %PARMS built-in function was introduced. Since then, several built-in functions have been added to RPG IV. ‘1’ if the most recent file input operation or write to a subfile (for a particular file, if specified) ended in an end-of-file or beginning-of-file condition.

So if the caller is written in another ILE language, it will need to pass an operational descriptor on the call. The second parameter is the timestamp format for character input. For a hexadecimal or UCS-2 literal, the size returned is half the number of hexadecimal digits in the literal. A wide range of built in functions are available. If it is not specified, the length is the length of the string parameter less the start value plus one. In the second parameter, the edit code is specified as a character constant; supported edit codes are: For example, if the string contains the third character in fromevery occurrence of that character is replaced with the third character in to.

There is nothing special you need to do to use built in functions however. The following example illustrates this.

The third parameter is the string to be translated. If the left-hand value is February 29 and the resulting year is not a leap year, February 28 is used instead.

Another useful feature of built-in functions is that they can simplify maintenance of your code when used on the definition specification. If the operation cannot complete successfully, exception or is issued.


Built In Functions

You can add the result to a number type numeric or a date, time, or timestamp type duration. Otherwise, this function returns ‘0’. This is illustrated in Figure The third parameter is optional, and if specified, must be one of: If the first parameter is a date, do not specify the second parameter. In general, the rules for the numeric value and edit code are identical to those for editing numeric values in output specifications.

Otherwise, status will be set at run time but no error message will be given. The starting position defaults to the end of the string. Je eigen naam vos.

It must not be a prototype for a Java method. The second parameter is the portion that you want to extract.

For a multiple-occurrence data structure containing pointer subfields, the size may be greater than the size of one occurrence times the number of occurrences. The result is a date or timestamp value with the appropriate number of days added or subtracted.

Data corruption will occur if both of the following are true: For now just think of a procedure as a kind of hybrid subroutine. It may be specified anywhere a numeric constant is allowed in the definition specification or in an expression in the extended factor 2 field. Snoezelkussens voor verstandelijk gehandicapten. A file is considered “open” if it has been opened by the RPG program during initialization or by an OPEN operation, and has not subsequently been closed.

When the string parameter is varying length, the values of the other parameters are checked against the current length, not the maximum length.

The starting position defaults to 1. Following is a rundown of some of the more useful built-in-functions.


It may also be used as the result of an assignment with the EVAL operation code. This rpglle function can be used anywhere that a character expression is valid.

Built-in Functions

The first three parameters can be of type character, graphic, or UCS Sign-up gpgle e-mail notifications. This length should be greater than the maximum length the right-hand side will have.

If the conversion results in substitution characters, a warning message is issued at compile time. This object is actually passed as a parameter to the native method by Java, but it does not appear in the prototype or procedure interface for the native method. This is a little more advanced, and requires some knowledge of ILE concepts.

The first parameter must be of type character, graphic, funvtions UCS The return value of the function itself is analogous to the result. The search starts at index startindex and continues for numelems elements.

For two dates epgle a date and a timestamp: The result is either 14 or 23 characters. New functions are added with each release of the operation system.

%SCANR (Scan Reverse for Characters)

The third parameter represents the starting position, measured in characters, for the replacement string. The syntax of built-in functions is: For graphic data, the value returned includes the shift-in and shift-out characters. This function is illustrated in Figure If the operand is of type float, the result is of type float; otherwise, the result is packed decimal numeric.
