Hi Vinay

Have you tried to google for it? Try this search -

qc2le site:ibm.com

That will get you to things at IBM's web site, for a start.

Have you tried to find the object on your machine? Try running WRKOBJ *ALL/QC2LE and see what it is. I know that it is not a directory - that would be the IFS. It is a BINDING directory. Have you ever used WRKBNDDIR? In any case, use that command to see what is in the BNDDIR - then go look at the *SRVPGMs listed there - you can see the exports there.

And your google search will bring you to the manual that scott mentioned.

But as Alan says, there are MUCH easier ways to get a count for a certain condition.

Also, these _R* functions are NOT the first thing to use for record-level-access to data files - use RPG or COBOL - these functions are the same as CHAIN,etc. There ARE a couple that RPG does not do, but you don't need them at all for daily work. And C/C++ is just NOT the language for record-level-access - unless you really enjoy self-inflicted pain!

I do use these procedures sometimes, for very special situations.

Regards
Vern

Hi,

Where can I find any documentation about what procedures are available in
QC2LE directory, and maybe how to use them?

I came across a program, which was using prototype called _RLocate to get
the RRN of a record based on a key from a keyed logical file.

I wanted to get the total number of records in that file which have Key
equal to a particular value.

Any information would be helpful.

Thanks
Vinay
