Hello, David.

Assuming that you are being a good boy and using the library list to determine
which object to execute (if it were hard coded, you'd already know the library,
wouldn't you?), the technique I'd use is this -

RTVOBJD   OBJ(cl program name here) OBJTYPE(*pgm) RTNLIB(&rtnlib)

This should return the first library found to contain the program object, based
on the library list, which also should be the program object currently being
executed.

Not an API, but simple.

HTH,
