i just noticed that there is a port of the glib c-library to the
iSeries. Does anybody has any experience (good or bad) with the
library on the iSeries (and perhaps with its usage in RPG).
The library can be downloaded here: http://www-03.ibm.com/servers/enable/site/porting/iseries/overview/gnu_utilities.html
One thing that leaves me uncertain is the version of the library ,
1.2.2. That is a bit outdated. The current version is 2.16.1 afaik.
