Gene, 

I thought any MI built-in can be called, even if not wrapped by IBM into a C
api, but I can't find that one in any of the system header files.  Usually
linkage pragma is used, i.e.:

#pragma linkage( _CLRBTS,  builtin )

followed by the function prototype definition, i.e.:

void _CLRBTS ( void *, unsigned );

Same doesn't work for ADDLC so I can only guess it's not made available by
IBM as bindable C interface.

What exactly does ADDLC do? 
(sorry, I don't code in MI yet but maybe when I get some free time...)

From what I gathered it concatenates two character strings, right?
If I interpreted correctly, strcpy followed by strcat would work on null
terminated strings, or 2 memcpy-s for non-null terminated string.  
I probably interpreted ADDLC description wrong.

Sorry for raising more questions than answering...

Elvis

By the way, I do not see an ADDLC in C's "Machine Interface Library
Functions", nor do I see an ADDLC in the list of ILE built-ins.
