As a minor point, starting with V4R3 section there is the
additional line "a length of 10 in order to allocate a 4-byte integer
field".  You are correct that previous editions did not mention the
usage of Integer fields.

You are also correct about the majority of the QRPGLESRC includes using
binary definitions rather than integer.  The hope is to be able to
introduce a new source file in the future which provides integer
definitions (along with longer names, function prototypes, based
structures, and other features of ILE RPG).  For compatibility reasons
the existing QRPGLESRC includes would, of course, also be available.


>Take from the System API Reference
> "For API BINARY(4) fields, RPG developers should use
>either positional notation or a length of 5 to 9 in order to allocate
>a 4-byte binary field"
>It makes no mention of 4 byte integer fields, does this mean all my 9B 0
>definitions have a potential error
>Even some of the API data structures in QSYSINC use 9B 0.
