How does having to remember to name all modules, every time you recompile
simplify things? If it is in the binding directory, and you have that
listed in your H spec. It seems simpler to me. The compiler will just find

Re: Question about service programs

I suggest that a *MODULE should only ever be bound in one place, either
in a single ILE bound *PGM, or in a single *SRVPGM, where it can then be
"shared" and accessed by as many other ILE *PGMs as needed/desired.

So, then, you would never add any *MODULEs to any binding directories.
You would only name that *MODULE on the one CRTPGM or CRTSRVPGM command,

This approach greatly simplifies maintenance (when that *MODULE
eventually gets changed).

*MODULEs are bound by copy, *SRVPGMs are bound by reference.
