The internal search function is temporarily non-functional. The current search engine is no longer viable and we are researching alternatives.
As a stop gap measure, we are using Google's custom search engine service.
If you know of an easy to use, open source, search engine ... please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
For this particular use case, perhaps a combination of DSPPGMREF, DSPFFD, DSPDBR, etc. along with some SQL might be a viable option.

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.
