Hi,

As far as I know, IBM doesn’t supply the source code for the built in functions.

Regards,

Martin Gilbert.

    Even though you can't get the IBM source code, you can essentially write your own built in functions (BIF). A BIF is basically a procedure that returns a value, which usually also accepts incoming parameters. So, you could create a custom procedure, which can be executed with the same syntax as a BIF. If you just wanted to enhance an existing BIF, you could incorporate the IBM BIF into your own procedure, and add any desired features within your code. Then, you'd call your procedure instead of the standard BIF. Or, if you want your procedure to do something quite different from how the IBM BIF operates, you would have to come up with your own logic to replace what the BIF does.
