I do this too. I have several pinned to the Acrobat Reader icon (pinned to the task bar) so I can get to them very easily. And, a pinned folder icon to get to the whole collection.

To complement Glenn's link, you might also try:
https://www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/ssw_ibm_i_73/pdftable/pdftable.htm

This will provide you with a list of all manuals in PDF format. I am
"old school" in finding it easier to navigate a conventional book than
follow a series of hyperlinks. Therefore, with each new (IBM i) release
I use the above list to download the PDF's that are of most interest to
me. This also has the advantage of providing a source of reference even
when internet access is not available.

RDi has most programming manuals built in to the help - but I still find
the (downloaded) PDF's faster and more usable to view.

Hope this helps.
Brian.

It's not as user-friendly as we'd all like but everything is here.
Hope this helps.

Is def-subj supposed to be dcl-subf instead? I'm trying to step up my use
of RPG and working hard to do it in free-form. I understand if this was
simply a typo (the Lord knows I make enough of those myself), but I want
to be sure I haven't missed something.

This also begs the question. Where on God's green earth do you find a
decent RPGLE Reference manual? </warning rant> IBM's websites have always
been a little frustrating. Recently, they've gone to catastrophic lengths
of obfuscation to make it virtually unusable--either that or I'm just a
complete failure at using it. Well, I'm a failure at using it no matter
what the cause. Then to frustrate me even more once I find something, the
format is sooooo different than the way IBM Reference manuals were for
decades that I have a hard time understanding how I'm to apply the
information therein. </end rant>

I wish I felt better after then rant, but I really don't.

Re: Anybody have an RPGIII program they could send me?

Kevin,

You don't have to change the names to avoid "reserved" names in
free-form.
On data declarations in DS for example you simply add dcl-subj in
front of the name.

So this:

D myDS DS
D chain 1a

Becomes:

Dcl-ds myDS;
def-subf chain char(1);
end-ds;

Similar options exist for procedure interface and prototype
parameters. It is basically the same scenario as being able to omit
EVAL in cals. You can omit it if the filed name does not match an
opcode name. So you have to code:

EVAL chain = 'Y';
