Hi, David:

Check out the Virtual Terminal APIs.  They are non-trivial, but 
they do what you want.

I hope this helps.

Is anyone aware of a technique to override a workstation file in an
RPG program to another type of file?

By default, the read/write operations to a WORKSTN file are handled by
the system.  I would like to 're-direct' those read/writes to another
program and talk to an RPG program as if my other program was the
system display handler.  

One thought is to try and override the WORKSTN file with another file
that another program is reading/writing to.  There may also be API's
to do this directly.

I don't want to work with the 5250 data stream sent to the screen, but
with the data in the WORKSTN file formats that is used to generate the
5250 datastream. 

Any ideas?   I have not searched IBM manuals yet.  If you know where
to look, that would be helpful also.
