Bob (Better Object Builder) would be a good option perhaps. Find it here: https://github.com/IBM/ibmi-bob <https://github.com/IBM/ibmi-bob>

But your release is so old that it would probably require a lot of work to even get it to build let alone work.

There are other free build tools out there but I've not used any of them. Relationships in IBM i that can affect the build can be complex and many of the commercial tools expend a lot of energy keeping track of it all.

Honestly Patrik, given your skills in Linux and most likely GIT I would set
that up using shares to the source files for source control.

Git doesn't help me with the task I have described. Allow me to explain.

I'm changing a physical file. E. g. making a field larger. That PF might be referenced by LFs, by DSPFs, by PRTFs and finally by PGMs.

I want to lessen the thinking effort about which objects need to be recreated after that change. This is a routine task. Routine tasks are usually perfect candidates for being automated. :-)

I'm not talking about source change tracking (git, cvs, etc.). What might come close is TMKMAKE, which I'm currently looking at closer.

Just wanted to get some input if there are other possibilities available.

That software from IBM was interesting however I don’t know anyone that actually used it.
