: Phil: sounds like you imply system pointers can be bases for offsets at : level 30. : What happened to MCH3602, "Pointer type not valid for requested operation" : ? Re-reading my response, I still don't think I made it clear what I was talking about for seclvl 30 and below. So I'll try again ! For certain objects on the AS/400 (almost all of the non-program objects), when you convert the system pointer to the object to a space pointer (to read/modify the object) you (usually) get a space pointer that is set to the location in memory just after the location of the root object address (i.e. the system pointer itself). At seclvl 30, you also normally get a domain violation when doing this, I was suggesting to Brian that for modifying non-program objects, if you create an object modifying program and then use SST to set your object modifying program to system state you'll be able to use this program to modify non-program objects instead of SST. Hopefully this is clearer ! --phil +--- | This is the MI Programmers Mailing List! | To submit a new message, send your mail to MI400@midrange.com. | To subscribe to this list send email to MI400-SUB@midrange.com. | To unsubscribe from this list send email to MI400-UNSUB@midrange.com. | Questions should be directed to the list owner/operator: email@example.com +---
