Cross reference tool

Hello, I'm currently working in an AS400 native RPG-environment, not ILE, and I want to create a cross reference for a part of the system(about 10 libraries). I'd like to create this by myself with the common commands on our system, I can do this thru DSPPGMREF and DSPBDR, DSPFD, DSPFFD, etc... But the problem is as usual the cost and time. Does anyone already setup a simular cross reference which can be downloaded for free ? Or does anyone know a tool which can be bought for a 'friendly' price. Anyhow I don't mind doing some programming, installing myself, after all I am a programmer analyst.

    I series network shareware page: http://www.iseriesnetwork.com/resources/code/shareware/index.cfm (does have cross reference tool) Help 400 freeware & open source page - I did not see a cross reference tool, but there are a lot of links at the bottom of the page for freeware/shareware sites.

    I don't know about their pricing structure as I haven't been responsible for purchases in a few years but the Hawkeye package from Pathfinder is the defacto standard in cross reference tools for the iSeries.

    I don't have a xref function, but have done similar things myself. I do have a set of building blocks that might help. See my web site and locate the [Files] link. From there, go into the [List processing] set. Three particular building blocks are for creating lists of objects, files or members, and then for executing commands against those lists. E.g., you might build a list of all of the libraries you're interested in. That list would be processed to feed into another list of all program objects in those libraries. And that list would be processed to apply DSPPGMREF against all of those programs. Two commands for that are BLDOBJLST (Build Object List) and PRCOBJLST (Process Object List). Similarly, BLDFLST, BLDMBRLST, PRCFLST and PRCMBRLST would go against files and members. All source is supplied for commands and command-processing programs. Programs are coded for ILE CL at V5R3. If necessary, they can be reworked to be OPM CL and pre-V5R3. (That's what they were for some 15 years. I just recently decided to update them.) But ILE CL shouldn't really matter. A tricky part of any xref is handling variable references to objects. You weren't clear if "not ILE" means "RPG II/III" rather than "RPG IV" or it means "default activation groups only". RPG IV can have a lot more variable references. Good Luck. Tom
