Please don't take it offline!  I'm trying to follow this thread along and
learn something.  I have been using RPG/IV for several years now, but given
time constraints and other issues, I hadn't even heard of sub-procedures
until I subscribed to this wonderful list.  These are the kinds of things I
need to get understand.

 >> What I'm saying is that I am using protos but not specifying EXTPROC.
That
way I can define which parms go it.

I'm still confused Brad - maybe we should take this off line. The code
sample
you pointed to uses CALLB not a CALLP. Besides, there is no connection
between
specifying ExtProc and whether or not parms have to be passed. I frequently
use
subprocedures to "wrap" APIs because IBM's idea of a sensible parameter
sequence
rarely matches mine <g>, that plus Option(*NoPass) gives me more than enough
flexibility. Certainly more than CALLB can offer.

What am I missing ?
