Um... I beg to differ with you on this.  It's quite easy.

Just write a CL that does the following...


        DCLF <display file with informational message>




Create a CMD called CHGPWD, with the following...

CMD('Alternate CHGPWD')

Create the CL and CMD in a library that's placed HIGHER on the system 
library list than QSYS.

Thus, when the CHGPWD command is invoked, the custom version is 
called... the information is displayed, and the QSYS version of 
CHGPWD is then invoked.

Of course, if IBM were to add parameters to the CHGPWD command, it 
will become a bit harder.  But for all versions of OS400 that I've 
seen (upto V3R1), it's a piece of cake.
