Hi, I would like to know what are the Input Output operations for console in RPG. As in COBOL we use ACCEPT to take input from the user and DISPLAY to show output on the terminal. In RPG using what operations we can achieve this? Regards Shruti.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Hi,

The equivalent would be the DSPLY operation code – displays a message and accepts a response. This is rarely these days as it is very limited in capability and using a display file gives much more flexibility.

On the System/36 in RPGII there was also another method – I believe you could define a file as KEYBOARD, but this is no longer supported.

Regards,

Martin Gilbert.
