I'm using the QSRLSAVF (List save file) API, and ran into something wierd. I
used format SAVF0100 to get generic information about the save file.
According to the API reference, the save date and time is CHAR(8) format,
but the program is getting this:

  &SAVDAT            *CHAR                 8        '= ض  '

Here's the returned data from the API:

 &RTNDTA            *CHAR              3000        'LOYD      SAVOBJ    =
'    D3D6E8C4404040404040E2C1E5D6C2D1404040407EDB8D3E80 
                                +26                '         y       *LIB
'    B6000000000001000030A800000054000000005CD3C9C24040 
                                +51                '    V4R3M00 10263KM
'    40404040E5F4D9F3D4F0F040F1F0F2F6F3D2D4404040404040 
                                +76                '
'    40404040404040404040404040404040404040404040404040 

This doesn't seem to translate to anything. Eight chars are too short to
hold anything unless it's in binary format, which it isn't. Am I missing
something or is this a bug?
