Actually because of the very strict ANSI C code compiling it as ILE C modules was a piece of cake. That worked out of the box. What was (or still is) a bit tricky is that it is not designed to be run on a platform with EBCDIC character set. So some things need to be taken care of. But all in all it is a great library very well coded.

You misunderstand me. I am saying that any service program (which, by
definition, must live in QSYS.LIB and be compiled with an ILE
compiler) is going to be the most RPG-friendly option. But it is
harder to port libxslxwriter to ILE C than it is to port libxlsxwriter
to PASE. If you port libxlsxwriter to PASE, it will not be as
RPG-friendly as a service program.
