if changing the RPG is possible would this be a good place to use the "on-exit" https://www.ibm.com/docs/en/i/7.3?topic=codes-exit-exit

you could set indicators change return variables, etc.
was also thinking about "on-error" but not sure what is going on in the program.

I have a CL program that calls a bunch of RPG programs.

The calls are in the form:

    SNDMSG     MSG('We experienced a problem with the +
                  FOO program, and are skipping the rest +
                  of this run.') TOMSGQ(QSYSOPR FROBOZZ)

Normally, this works quite well. But today, we experienced an anomaly, such that we would like very much for the CL program to respond differently if a dump is taken on one of the called RPG programs.

I will note that when an *expected* error occurs, the RPG program will respond with a SETON of indicators H1 and LR, followed by a RETURN. The *unexpected* errors *don't* have an explicit SETON of H1. Can I maybe use that?
