We would like lo scan many libraries to find programs that use variables of a particular lenght/type for further investigations. With OPM there was a powerful utility written by Gene Gaunt that provided what we are looking for. With ILE there should be QteDumpModuleVariable, that should give this information, but unfortunately it returns only variable names ant types but NOT the lenght. We thought that it is a bug of the API and we asked IBM but they said that it works as expected (!?). This makes this api useless for this purpose; does someone knows how to access (with MI or other ways) the symbol table and get the field full informations? ----- Giuseppe.
