RDI: “Compiling and settings”

After the introduction we had with the previous posts (see the link https://linkedibmi.com/2018/03/03/introduction-use-rdi/)  and the link https://linkedibmi.com/2018/03/11/rdi-three-tips-for-a-quick-start/ I would discuss a bit about compiling possibilities and compiling settings.


First I would remember you that you could manage by “Host Connection Emulator” an old style section as you can see in the picture:


Coming back to the main argument, we should use RDI for compiling. Before to do that, we should manage “Library List” by adding or changing libraries into the list of libraries, as the picture shows:


We can manage the position of the library easily, by using these options:


As alternative to set the library list, you could write a CL program to set the list and indicate it into the USRPRF parameters, as initial program to call. If you connect with the user the library list will be set at the login:


At this point we could try to compile and see how to do it. First think I want to show you, you could define and change COMPILING COMMAND:


You are able to operate inside the command and change or add parameters:


If you ask for confirm, you could see all the parameters you have set into the command and change compiling options:


If you want to operate directly on the compiling command of your source, you should choose this option:


And the following window will shows you all the options and the other details about library, file and member name:


When you try to launch the compiling and the batch compiling is set, you should see the SBMJOB trace in the log:


When the compiling is interactive, you should see the error list. When you click on one error you can see directly where is the problem and the cause. In this way it is easier to fix error and compile correctly:
