Each time the *New pgm called, files will need to be opened.

*INLR at all. Do modules, by deault, always close their files when the
RETURN is executed?
No

No, at least not that I am aware of.

The main RPG that does the read loop and uses the module is actgrp(*new). The module has nothing specified for activation group and is bound to the main RPG using a binding directory on the H: spec of the RPG. The main RPG just has

READ PF LOOP
.
. standard rpg code
.
EVAL results = module(parm1:parm2)
.
. standard rpg code
.
END LOOP

We have a module that we bind into multiple programs that needs to open a
file to do it's job. One of the applications that uses this module reads
through a 10,000+ record file and calls the module. The module has USROPN
on the files needed and does a test to see if the file is open using NOT
%OPEN and will open it if needed. It never closes the files. The journals
for this application show that the file used in the module is being
opened/closed for every record processed. The module does not reference
*INLR at all. Do modules, by deault, always close their files when the
RETURN is executed?
