Do it the same way that the SAVCHGOBJ command does it, by using the library's changed object list.


Or, just create a data area to track the last date/time you checked, and then issue a SAVCHGOBJ from that date/time, to a temporary save file (e.g. QTEMP/SAVF) and update that data area with the current date/time.

Then you can use DSPSAVF or the QSRLSAVF API to interrogate what was saved (changed). See:

Does anybody know of an easy way, without going through every object and
every file member individually, for a CL program to determine whether
anything has changed in a library?
