Wow, that looks like a lot of code.  Almost all of it is D specs defining
variables and functions.  That stuff is #include'd in my C version, which

equivalents for RPG?  I know you can use /INCLUDE and /COPY, but that's
not what I'm referring to.  I mean system supplied header files that make
all the D spec stuff unnecessary.  So you could just do something like:

D/INCLUDE types.h
D/INCLUDE dirent.h

Of course I guess it would be nice if RPG supported typedef, too (maybe it
