Don't you HATE it when you have to "dumb-down" your code to meet the
skillset of the worst programmer on the team????

I got dinged for writing

A += 1;

Instead of

A = A + 1;

And they made me change the lines of code to the latter.

And before I get dinged for this response, although the original comment
mentioned India, this comment is not intended to be racially biased but is
in reality, this a matter of fact everywhere.

Subject: More D spec questions

Might as well go for broke here. My EXTNAME and PREFIX is giving errors.
Trying to make a free format DS for what is "dsPgms" shown below it. Tried
these keywords with the " ' " and without it.

Dcl-ds dspgms PSDS
EXTNAME(SYSAPGPF)
PREFIX(Gv)
End-ds;
// d dsPgms EsDS EXTNAME(SYSAPGPF) PREFIX(Gv)

The IBM documentation I am not understanding for either of my Prototype
declarations.

d EXPPGM PR Extpgm('FIFT09RE')
D

D APCVRMXXX PR ExtPgm('APCVRMXXX')
D EHCORF 10
D EHINTP 1
D @RTCODE 2P 0

The folks in India that originally wrote this program do not even know you
do not need /Free and /End-free anymore. Instead of figuring out some
C-specs they just left a few lines here and there. I got corrected in a code
review that I might be writing code no one OFFSHORE could understand:)
