Hello Jevgeni,

Since C uses the library list by default you should be able to make this work 
by:

#pragma linkage( PROGA, OS )
void PROGA( ..... );

int main( void )
{
        PROGA( .... );
}

Of course, that method presumes you know the program name at compile-time. If 
you don't know the program name until run-time then you can use the RSLVSP MI 
function to resolve a system pointer to the progam object and then call it 
using 
a C function pointer.

You would first resolve to the program in the KLIB123 library. If not found 
then 
resolve to the program in the KAPBASELIB. Once you have a resolved pointer you 
can invoke it using the pointer. For example:

#include <rslvsp.mih>

#pragma linkage( KBPGM_T, OS)
typedef void KBPGM_T( void * parm1, void * parm2 );
KBPGM_T * KBPGM;

int main( void )
{
        void * parm1, * parm2;
        char * program;        
        char * library;

        program = "PROGA";
        library = "KLIB123";

        /* 
        ** May need an exception handler for MCH3601 
        ** See #pragma exception_handler in C Language Reference
        */

        KBPGM = rslvsp( WLI_PGM, program, library, _AUTH_NONE );

        if (!KBPGM ) 
        {
                library = "KAPBASELIB";
                KBPGM = rslvsp( WLI_PGM, program, library, _AUTH_NONE );
        }

        KBPGM( parm1, parm2 );
}

If you know that a program with the right name will exist in the library list 
then you could simply set library to *LIBL before resolving and skip the second 
resolve step.

Regards,
Simon Coulter.
