Bernd, >Does anyone know of a quick way to get the total number of objects in a >system? As Leif points out, this is complicated by how you define "objects", with a prime example being whether multi-member files (eg source files) count as one object or one per member (plus one for the object itself). But if all you want is an approximation, and you know how you want to handle member counts, then I do have a partial solution for you. I once spent some time investigating how to get a fast object count for a single library, and came up with the solution below. It counts objects from a system perspective, so I also have it back out the member count. In my testing this made it match the expected object count for most libraries, and was within 1% for QSYS. The following program demonstrates the technique for a single library. You'd have to roll your own loop to accumulate the sum for all libraries after using an API to list the library names. I'll leave that as an excercise for the reader.
