Terry,

Thanks for the help up to this point. I have to ask one more thing.

When I use the CL example you sent me to send the completion message it does
not work if the CL is called from a ILE C program (The CL works fine if
called from another CL).

I have noticed that the message is shown on the c terminal screen (I
happened to print a debug message to the screen). The program does not
typically write to stdout and I end it with exit(0) to prevent the c
terminal from being shown.

Could the exit(0) be part of the problem or do need to implement the CL eq.
in ILE C (I would need help if the answer is yes) ?


Thanks,
Etienne

Not at all.  I just didn't want to make assumptions about what you already
know.

Here are examples in CL.

AA1722 is the basic way of doing it.  Note in particular TOPGMQ(*PRV).

AA1723 simply forwards a completion message from a called program.  This is
what you might do in a program which is a trivial wrapper around another
program which does all the real work.

===== start AA1722 =====
pgm

             SNDPGMMSG  MSGID(CPF9897) MSGF(QCPFMSG) MSGDTA('AA1722 +
                          completed successfully') TOPGMQ(*PRV) +
                          MSGTYPE(*COMP)

endpgm
===== start AA1723 =====
pgm

dcl          &msgid     *char     7
dcl          &msgdta    *char  2000
dcl          &msgf      *char    10
dcl          &msgflib   *char    10

             CALL       PGM(AA1722)

             RCVMSG     MSGTYPE(*COMP) MSGDTA(&MSGDTA) MSGID(&MSGID) +
                          MSGF(&MSGF) MSGFLIB(&MSGFLIB)

             SNDPGMMSG  MSGID(&MSGID) MSGF(&MSGFLIB/&MSGF) +
                          MSGDTA(&MSGDTA) TOPGMQ(*PRV) MSGTYPE(*COMP)

endpgm
===== end source files =====

Let me know if you need help translating these techniques into C.

HTH.

Terry.
