Would you believe, I actually found those. But the ILE C for AS/400
Run-Time Library Reference is not there. And this is the manual that has
the native IO library functions documented. This 4th manual gives you the
includes for each function, with various examples and usage info. The 3
manuals you have are not enough, unless they have this information somewhere.

In InfoCenter, there are these 4 manuals listed under Programming->C and
C++. (I'm not asking for the MI Library reference, although I think it'd be

We're a business partner with IBM, and we do all our development in C and
CL. Because C is the best thing for the kinds of tools we write. But your
tools appear to be giving C/C++ short shrift. (1) You don't have all the
documentation (2) You don't have a verifier - used to have, in Visual Age
C++, so you COULD get it again (please) (3) you don't have
context-sensitive help for keywords or library functions - Visual Studio
(Microsoft) does

A lot of these things are there for RPG and COBOL and even CL - but not for

I could not find any Runtime Library documentation. You know, like memset,
printf, etc. What am I missing? Language Reference, Programming Guide, and
