if that's what you are looking for then you'll have to "roll your own" or
look for one someone has written.

RE: Search OS/400 Physical Files

Vern, et al,

I think what Shannon is looking for and I for sure am, is a native i5/OS
Search function that allows me to put in a character string or whatever
and *ALL libraries, if I so desire, and have it search ALL files in all
libraries, particularly source or physical files and have it function like
the Search function in Windoz. I have entered STRPDM, I have pulled up
a list of objects from all libraries, I have put in 25 in the option field
of the first on the list (shouldn't have to do this if I want to search
all objects in one or more libraries in the first place) and I pressed
enter. I get "Option 25 not valid". So, I then tried WRKF. I say all
files, all libs, PF. I get a list. I put in 25 in the option field of
the first file, I get "Specified option number not allowed". I have
*ALLOBJ and am a SECADM. So, I don't see ANYTHING that allows me to do a
Windoz like search on all objects for a character string or anything like
it. What am I missing?
