Not familiar with qdbifld, and/or qadbxsfld - where do they fit?
... q[a]dbifld and qadbxsfld are part of the repository views in sysibm and
qsys2. Out of my head they should contain all info of DSPFFD and co. (they
are base of the commands and APIs, I suppose). The problems with these are:
it's not guaranteed that the layout won't change with new releases and
access is restricted to privileged users. The apis and the "nice" and
"modern" UDTFs don't have the built in wizards and help information the
command interfaces of AS/400 have. From APIs to commands with outfiles was a
step forward and introducing UDTFs is a step back!!!
