an integer field will show up as B data type. B data types in RPG are
generally considered deprecated.


But H spec EXTBININT(*YES) will cause RPG to interpret external B types (with zero decimal positions) as I instead of B.

A R REC
A BIN9_0 9B 0
A BIN9_1 9B 1

My RPG program:

H* extbinint(*yes)
d junkf e ds

Cross reference, without EXTBININT(*YES)
BIN9_0 B(9,0)
BIN9_1 B(9,1)

With EXTBININT(*YES)
BIN9_0 I(10,0)
BIN9_1 B(9,1)
