Some potential solutions......
     
     1) decompilation services exist. Check out www.sourceretrieval.com 
     However, for CL programs, you might be able to RTVCLSRC. 
     
     2) Depending on your OS version, you may/should have CMPPFM 
     (Compare Physical File Member). 
     
     3) You could write a little program to CPYSPLF the reports to two 
     PFs, then use CMPPFM to point out the differences. 
     
     # 2 and 3 are budget minded solutions. Better tools exist, but 
     these are free.  
     
     Good luck

I have a question for you all and if there were a manual  I would check
it.  I have a need for a tool(s) that does the following:

1. Decompile objects-RPG, CL (That's the easy one)

2. Compare Database files.  If I have 2 identically defined files in 2
libraries, how can I tell the difference in their fields?

3. Compare Spool files.  If I have 2 reports that are similar, is there
a way to compare for differences, even possibly getting them to a
database file first.

I have tried combinations of CMPPFM and various TAATOOLS with minor
success but have not found anything that would handle large record
lengths and mult rec logicals very well.  Can anyone recommend something
for any of these needs.

TIA
Sam
