Why not let the RPG open the file and grab the library from the INFDS?

dcl-ds fileDS;
libName char(10) Pos(93);

Works for me.

I'm looking for the most efficient , most direct approach for pulling the
first library name of an object in a *LIBL.

here is why...

the rpg pgm receives a lib and table name as a parm, - user may specify
blank or *libl for the lib parm...

If blank or *libl I'll need to determine that library for the table name
from my *libl.

What I am eventually doing needs an implicit lib name... it is nothing that
*libl will work with.
