Gad -

Once upon a time there was a company named Source Retrieval, Inc. which provide software and/or a pay-per-source member service for this.

At the turn of the century I utilized their service for a client in Chicago and successfully retrieved the source from an OPM RPG program. The code was ugly, since the compiles translates loop code into GOTO's with tags, but I was able to edit the retrieved source and make it much like the original structure code.

However, Source Retrieval disappeared into the mist a few years ago and I have not been able to find out what happened to their offerings.

Subject: Lost source of old RPG PGM

Hello all

I thought this would not happen to ME but it just did

A developer here just asked me to help him find a source of an OLD OPM RPG program.
Apparently the source is lost for a looong time as digging in several-years-old backups did not unearthed it.
Unfortunately, the PGM object has no debug data (STRDBG displays nothing)

is there a way to retrieve the source from the PGM object (besides dumping) ?

Any help would be gladly received
