Everything you are all saying is correct, but the System Value QPRCFEAT
gives you a hybrid of what the processor and the interactive feature is.
It's not well documented, and became much harder to use once IBM gave you
variable interactive in the model 7xx line, but it something that anyone
can get and read.  (i.e.:  no programming, no special authority).

There's a chart in my "System Values" pitch that I do for COMMON.

I think it's the type of Type-Model - ours is 1517-001, so it's interactive

feature 1517.

You can get it programatically with the MATMATR API (actually a sufraced MI

instruction). To get the actual limit, you might look at the MATRMD
(Materialize resource management data). There are options (x01 and x1E,
IIRC) that will give you the interactive limit. Take a look at
<http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/iseries/v5r1/ic2924/tstudio/tech_ref/mi/>
for information. C includes are located in QSYSINC/MIH.

These are MI instructions that IBM has made available to HLLs. You can use
them in RPG as well as C - just need to set up data structures to match.
They are read-only - no danger to your system. You are not programming IN
MI by using these instructions, rather, you are using MI functions in a
high-level language, just as any other API.

Actually, there is a version of this you can run in CLLE - it uses pointers

to both variables, so CL can call it. Here follows a little code to do it.
The size of the &Data variable is determined from information at the above
site, as well as the C include.

PGM

DCL        VAR(&DATA) TYPE(*CHAR) LEN(2616)
DCL        VAR(&OPTION) TYPE(*CHAR) LEN(2) VALUE(X'012C')
DCL        VAR(&PROCFEAT) TYPE(*CHAR) LEN(4)
DCL        VAR(&INTFEAT) TYPE(*CHAR) LEN(4)

CALLPRC    PRC('_MATMATR1') PARM(&DATA &OPTION)
CHGVAR     VAR(&PROCFEAT) VALUE(%SST(&DATA 2609 4))
CHGVAR     VAR(&INTFEAT) VALUE(%SST(&DATA 2613 4))

ENDPGM
