Do you want to use RPG/400 (OPM) or RPGIV (ILE)?  Also, its not clear if you
need structural guidance or a working example.   Since RPG* only supports
one dimensional arrays you will need two arrays.  They will be "run time"
arrays.  You use the RPG/400 op code LOKUP, or RPGIV op code LOOKUP (or BIF
%LookUpxx) to search for an element in one array, thereby receiving the
index to the corresponding array.  -Dave K.
