Very nice, Simon. A couple of points...

I suspect no-one's done it because it's trivial:

1) put a transient message on the message line

2) put a message in the joblog
TOPGMQ( *PRV or name of call stack entry )
MSGTYPE( pretty much anything but *STATUS and *NOTIFY )

Beware of *ESCAPE

3) equivalent to an RPG DSPLY statement

TOPGMQ(*EXT) MSGTYPE( pretty much anything but *STATUS )

Beware of *ESCAPE

*ESCAPE message sent to program or call stack entry will result in error
management execution within that program or call stack entry. I *think*
*ESCAPE sent to *EXT results in job termination. (?)

Those are using SNDPGMMSG. Translating to QMHSNDPM is easy to:

TOPGMQ ==> Parameter 6 (plus 10 and 11 and 13 if necessary)

MSGTYPE ==> Parameter 5
