OK, I _might_ be putting my foot in my mouth here, but I'd guess that if I
did 1 million clears of a field using each of these techniques they'd all
perform w/in a couple of seconds of eachother. If I then looked at an "real"
system where a job-run resulted in 1 million clears of a field that job
would run for minutes to hours, so what's a couple of seconds?

Subject: [MI400] CPU/MI Timings

Newbie again...!

Does anyone know which compiled RPG code is quicker...

So for example is it better to Z-ADD 0 Field or Clear Field or Move 0 Field
or maybe use an Initialise on a data structure, etc.

I am thinking of the cpu time each line will take when compiled. or would
the MI look the same for both...
