(pardon me if i'm not 100% on the cycle timing in this..
I beleive lda is read into a pgm when pgm is init.
Even though we can move values to fields in UDS throughout pgm, the actual
data area not updated till LR.

So if PGMA moves new values to lda, then (before ending) calls another pgm which will read that lda - you must do an explicit OUT to force the update of the local data area.

must be a named data structure - here name is "LDA"

D LDAC# 400 401 0
D LDADV 402 404 0
D LDALC 405 406 0

This defines it - put this at top of calcs or in *inzsr subroutine

This updates it. Do this before calling other pgms needing new lda values.


pass parms.... kill the lda.

Subject: Stuck on accessing the LDA -- manuals no help so far

Can somebody point me in the direction of an example of two ILE RPG
programs, neither of which calls the other, communicating with each
other via the Local Data Area?

Preferably without doing an IN on all *DTAARAs known to the program?

When I RTFM on this one, all it does is make me go cross-eyed.
