A somewhat easier way is to type WRKMSGD KBD0000 on the iSeries.  Buck
Calabro pointed this out on Friday.

Yes, that's what I did.  Actually I had already done this before I asked
the original question.  The only thing I was asking was what the various
error numbers are. Once Buck posted the solution, I had the code finished
that afternoon.  I didn't commit it to CVS until late Sunday night because
I wanted to test it more thoroughly... sorry if that made it look like I
was still waiting for an answer...  but still, it's nice to have
confirmation that I'm doing it correctly.

Anyway... problem solved.  Thanks!
