For display files this means that I want to put all screen constants with

*Inzsr routine in the RPG programs.

Use the MSGCON or MSGID DDS keyword and let the system do the work for you.

Printouts are defined using RPG O specs. I am looking into using the same
concept I as I want to use for the display files.

Convert to DDS and use MSGCON. Other benefits will ensue too. There are third-party tools to do conversion. See http://archive.midrange.com/midrange-l/199904/msg00427.html

The process is quite a handfull to do manually, so I am looking for an
automated way to do this. The most cumbersome thing for me to do is to
extract all literals. This means I need to read all source files with DDS
specs, and then determine which lines contain a literal, and also take care
of the continuation lines.

Does anyone care to share such a utility, if it does exist at all?

There are some third-party tools to do this. See http://www.navan.co.uk/
