Is there a way via FTP to retrieve additional source code line-level details (sequence #, date line of code was changed) from iSeries RPG/CL source libraries? If not via FTP, is there another way to extract and transfer this information?

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

If I undestand correctly, all you have to do is copy the source to a regular physical file, big enough to hold all the information. You can do it using the command CPYSRCF.

============================================================

FTP is not an OS/400 facility — it’s a standard cross-platform TCP/IP utility. As such, it has no knowledge of platform specific elements such as member text and attributes. Technically, it doesn’t even know about members, much less anything like object “source file”.

If platform-specific attributes are needed, then platform-specific interfaces should be used. For example, a DDM file might be used with CPYF. Or FTS might be used in place of FTP.

If FTP must be used, then an intermediate platform-specific step can be inserted — save to a savefile and transfer the savefile. Most attributes can be transferred without FTP being aware.
