Besides the earliest date in the source code there is a creation date on the source member. The creation date of the program must be on or after the source member creation date so is that close enough?

Subject: RE: Original (Creation) Date
I don't believe the system has any inherent process that would record
this. Perhaps you can extrapolate from the earliest dates in the source
code to determine when a program was originally coded, but from this you
would only really end up with a 'wild-ass-guess'

Subject: Original (Creation) Date
My boss is asking me if there is any way to determine when a program was
originally created. DSPOBJD's creation date is the last date on which
it was compiled. It doesn't seem reasonable to me that the
compiler/system would keep track of the original date from the previous
program object that it was replacing, but thought I would ask.
