I don't think it's a good idea...

Especially in the use case of only including 1 or 2 prototypes...

Maybe today you only need 1 or 2 in one place...but some other place needs
a dozen...

then you've got
/define PROC1
/define PROC2
/define PROC3
/define PROC4
/define PROC5
/define PROC6
/define PROC7
/define PROC8
/define PROC9
/define PROC10
/define PROC11
/define PROC12
/undefine PROC1
/undefine PROC2
/undefine PROC3
/undefine PROC4
/undefine PROC5
/undefine PROC6
/undefine PROC7
/undefine PROC8
/undefine PROC9
/undefine PROC10
/undefine PROC11
/undefine PROC12

Now say I need to add a call to another existing proc...what was that name
again? No way to see it in my program..

What's worse...you open up PROTOSRC,MYSRVPGM and the outline view shows no

Anybody else ever had the need/desire to code a compound

/if defined(PrototypesOnly) and ( defined(_ImLfDt_GetTableData) or
defined(ImLfDt_GetTableData) )

What is the link to creating a request for such a thing? ...and,
would anybody vote for it? think it is a good idea?
