First of all, you might want to move this from midrange-l to rpg400-l.

Jeff gave some good responses on education and general guidelines on 
procedures.

COMMON isn't a bad place to learn.
http://www.common.org

The IBM AS/400 technical conferences are a good place also:
http://www-3.ibm.com/services/learning/conf/as4002/index.html

There are several educational consultants out there to do onsite.  We 
had Jon Paris come here.  That was excellent.  Prior to that I was banging 
out some ILE RPG but I couldn't get procedures to work until the training.  
Jon often speaks at the two previously mentioned conferences.

There are books that you can get.  Check out the web sites for 
midrangecomputing and news400.  See also rpgiv.com.

Chapter 4 of the ILE RPG programmers guide has some sample procedures.

Good luck!

Subject:        RE: Procedures

Good questions.  If I need the same subroutine in multiple programs, I
create a module.  I have created a standard binding directory in which I add
all my modules.  If I call the same program from several other programs, for
example validating the users security to use an application, I create a
service program and add it to my binding directory.  As soon as all the
programmers here learn how to code procedures and bind programs this will be
implemented.  For now it is only in some TCP/IP sockets programs.  When to
build a service program or a module is not clear to me.  Any other takers?
What is the benefit to using one over the other?  I would also like to know.

Maybe I did not make myself clear enough.  I have figured out how to writ
the code for procedures.
I don't know where to go from there.

Do I create a module or bound program?
do I need a Binding directory?
How do I compile the module into the binding directory?
Do I make it a service program?
etc.
