The F18-PDM Defaults information is not extractable in a form supported by IBM.
It can only be had from a DMPSYSOBJ command.  Based on information I have
gleaned from other sources, I created a program to get at the information you're
looking for.  I have only run this on my V4R2 box and have no idea whether it
will work on other releases without some tweaking.  As with all code in this
category, use at your own risk!

I was going to post it here but discovered that CL & RPGLE programs total about
130 lines.  If you're interested in this, let me know and I'll email it

Anyone know how to get to the F18-Change Defaults information (in PDM)
from a batch job?  I'm trying to set up some compile options to
fool-proof the ILE compiles.  Specifically to make it so that an
operator with little of no knowledge of ILE environment to be able to do
a simple recompile, if necessary.

I have some PDM user-defined options which use the parms from the F18
screen, but I now need to make it so the regular old 14-compile will use
the options from the user's "Change Defaults" screen.  I want to add my
own CRTRPGPGM, CRTSRVPGM, etc. into a library ahead of QSYS, set up the
parms, and run the QSYS version.  This should be possible, but I don't
know (or remember?) how.
