Hi Mark!  I'm trying to do almost exactly what the example I alluded to
talks about, which is overriding a library function.  Very specifically,
I'm going to write a service program initialization function that does
nothing, and allow developers to override that function to provide what
is in effect a *INZSR for service programs, but don't tell Roger!  :)

See the ILE Concepts manual, around page 76, for a detailed explanation of "weak exports."


What are you hoping to achieve by using this feature?


   (So, "ILE" really does mean "It's a Linkage Editor!") ;-)


Hope that helps,
