I use #Mapinc all the time on V6R1? What compiler are you using?

Where else?

Wherever the C compiler comes from now. Compilers in general come from
Toronto--not sure whether C is there since irRational have taken over
all this stuff.

Much in C changed at VRM510--see various complaints from me in the
archives. Different C compiler.

Well, as long as it compiles what we need it to . . .

That's questionable. I ran into a bunch of issues taking complex C
source that compiled on 440 to 510. Gave up initially and used

Many includes stored in stream files.

What stream files, and where?

That's an exercise for you. Start at /QIBM.

Although the new C compiler is more consistent with C on other
platforms it has lost much when compared to the previous C compiler.

Lovely. Please tell me it still has _Ropen, _Rread, and so forth, and
packed decimal.

Yes, but it lost mapinc support--got a stupid alternative command to
create an include from the file description instead.
