Wow... thanks! I'll give it a try.

I was also missing the OPTION(*DUPPROC) on the CRTSRVPGM.

I created a new version of COMPILE called iBuild. You can download it at

Can use from command line or RDI.

And to add a little more help in the future, compiling different sources:

Scott Klement made a utility named BUILD

UPDSRVPGM only allows you to "snap in" a replacement *MODULE. There is
no way to add a new *MODULE to an existing *SRVPGM - it has to be
re-created with CRTSRVPGM. (No need to delete - the CRTSRVPGM has the
REPLACE(*YES) option.)

The Binder Source allows you the flexibility of managing the Signature
of the *SRVPGM such that you wouldn't (normally) re-create all dependent
*PGMs/*SRVPGMs which reference it - UNLESS they are calling procedures
in the new (added) *MODULE. It does this through the use of multiple
*PRV Signatures, (for backward compatibility) as well as the *CURRENT

GOLDEN RULE: Add new exports to the end of the STRPGMEXP/ENDPGMEXP block.

(An alternative approach is to manually control the SIGNATURE on the
STRPGMEXP binder source statement by replacing *GEN with your chosen
hex/character string.)
