  I was using

 * Open directory 
 *   #include <sys/types.h> 
 *   #include <dirent.h> 
 *   DIR *opendir(const char *dirname); 
Dopendir          pr              *   extproc('opendir')
D                                 *   const 

This failed.  When I switched to value instead of const it worked.  This 
isn't the first time I've been confused between VALUE and CONST.
Looking at the C prototype, it specifies CONST CHAR *DIRNAME.  Why do I 
need to use VALUE in RPG?
