You could also use ILE Condition Handlers - see functions CEEHDLR and CEEHDLU. I personally find the #pragma exception_handler to be the easiest to use, but if you want to learn something that's standard for C, learn about signals. _______________________________________________ This is the C programming iSeries / AS400 (C400-L) mailing list To post a message email: C400-L@xxxxxxxxxxxx To subscribe, unsubscribe, or change list options, visit: http://lists.midrange.com/mailman/listinfo/c400-l or email: C400-L-request@xxxxxxxxxxxx Before posting, please take a moment to review the archives at http://archive.midrange.com/c400-l.
