Hello,
I have found a way to use external TTF font files into my PDF generator. That is to say, PDF file can include not only the 200 characters of the west-europe-ASCII code, but the 60000 characters of the Unicode map.
I think to publish this as a plugin for my RPG-only PDF service program, for a little fee.
Are you interested by this feature ?Contact

User Defined table Function  I've writen an article on UDTF for SystemiINetwork : Build a New Interface to Legacy Applications with SQL UDTFs
Procedure & performance I had a performance issue while converting a subroutine to a subprocedure. I searched through my logic looking for reasons, but found nothing wrong. The issue was elsewhere.

In this article I show you the pitfall that I discovered and how to avoid it while improving your code to use subprocedures, one of ILE's prettiest features.

(need Pro/ProVIP subscription) *Read Jean-Paul Lamontre's discoveries about the performance of RPG subprocedures.

Q: Concerning your article "Procedures and Performance" (article ID 54505 at SystemiNetwork.com) maybe you could improve the performance of your procedure using the STATIC keyword in the local variable definition?

A: Good question. I had the question on the tip of my tongue, but at the time that I wrote the article my point wasn't about optimizing the code, it was to show how painful my experience was. Done! Now it's time to show how to use the STATIC keyword.

When CCSID Constants Vary, Part I

Learn how one simple character can make a program go crazy.

Several years ago, I wrote an email processing program for the System i and posted the source on my Web site. Several people have downloaded the code, compiled the program, and run it without any problems…until recently. For a few months now, people have been reporting that the program crashes. The program MAIL, which worked perfectly for several years, suddenly went haywire.

When CCSID Constants Vary, Part II
Don't let a small thing like a literal string completely ruin your multi-national program.

The variations of CCSID are a vast topic and are in fact the main issue to consider during globalization of an application. You will find many pages on the Web on this topic (search for Unicode, CCSID, globalization, or national language support). Some of the most interesting are the ones from the IBM i Information Center.

In my previous article, I showed how a simple line of RPG code can turn a program haywire just because the JOB CCSID has changed. In this article, I will explain how to handle literal strings, which are sensitive to CCSID variations.

When CCSID Constants Vary, Part III

Analyze Your Programs And Applications, Part I

In the first of this series of TechTips, find information about each object in each library.

Recently, a friend called me for help. His boss asked him two questions:

  • How much lost or forgotten old RPG or CL do we have?
  • What is the status of the "general review of all the ILE programs" project?

And of course, the boss didn't want to invest in software for analyzing cross-references. "With all the commands in the OS, there is at least one that gives this info, isn't there?"

Audit Your Exit Points

Suppose it's the beginning of a new year, and the first time the human resources manager logs into payroll, he unknowingly sends the file of annual salaries to an email address it shouldn't go to, by directly Telnet-ing port 25, something discreet and undetectable.

Analyze Your Programs And Applications, Part III
Fill the gap between modules and ILE programs for a full panorama of your ILE application.

Part I and Part II of this series have shown how some system commands can be used to dissect in depth one application, without the source code. But these analyses suffer from a lack of information for ILE programs—namely, the link between the program and embedded modules. Read More >>
