overloading with RPG is not possible.
You may get your function overloaded if you register 2 different RPG
functions as SQL UDFs with the same name.
Contrary to RPG SQL UDFs can be overloaded.

But calling a RPG function via SQL UDF from within RPG will be the reverse
of performant.

Not directly... You simply use a bif to convert your numerics to character.

Writediff('number' : %char(number)); // strips off leading
Writediff('number' : %editc(number:'J')); // grouping sep,
print zeros, - sign
Writediff('Text' : text);

I have a the following coded subproc:

P WriteDiff b

D WriteDiff pi

7d fieldchange 10 const

d value 80 const


lgfldch = fieldchange;

lgvalue = %trim(value);

write rlog;


P WriteDiff e

Is there a way to do this that no matter if I pass a character or numeric
defined field, the subproc would work.

So, both of these would work.




Writediff('number' : number);

Writediff('Text' : text);


I am thinking that I would pass a pointer rather then the value, but not
sure how I would code this.
