If Jeff knows what files he is looking for, then this is a useful technique.

But I think he wants to find OUT which files are used in a program - a different question.

BTW, the search in RDi is pretty good - it is basically the FNDSTRPDM called repeatedly for the context specified. It will work over a filter that can include multiple libraries and source files and members, with wildcards possible at each level.

As you widen the filter, it can be excruciatingly slow.

Now I have found the iSphere search to be several orders of magnitude faster then the regular IBM i search in RDi - it's worth getting that set of utilities for this alone, IMO.

This might be a good opportunity to give RDi a 60-day trial? The search facility with RDi is quite good, including fuzzy searches. The real advantage is that the search returns a tree with a line for each hit so you can see if the line is one you want. Additionally, a line can be clicked and it will expand the member for your review.

In other words, it gives you a DSPGMREF in an interactive format.

The issue is not so much with recompile the program, but to be aware of
where the file is used, so that *if* the file changed, all programs can be
reviewed to determine what if any change is needed.
