Hi Scott,

it seems to me that the support of RDi for sources in stream files is not so good as for sources in source files. I detected that when opening a stream file in LPEX editor the stream file will not be locked. When opening members in source files the members will be locked.

Perhaps we should collect all the things RDi should have for handling sources in stream files and then we open a "Request for Enhancement".

Betreff: Re: [WDSCI-L] LPEX editor and stream files containing ILE RPG source

Hey, Frank... I'd love to see this as well! The fact that the include directory is one global setting for all files is clumsy

I'd also like to see some way of just typing the name of a file to open, instead of having to create a filter, get a list of hundreds of files in the directory, and having to scroll through it and find the one I want. For source members, I can just type the file/lib/member name, but for IFS I have no choice but to sift through the files in the file system to find it.

IMHO, using stream files in the IFS is the future, so these would be a great way to keep RDi as the leading IDE for IBM i as times continue to change.

Hi Steve,

this is what I was looking for. Thank you.

I have another question. The section "Include Directory" is on a
global level. I have a lot of connections in the remote systems
explorer and the different connections need different include
directories. Is there a way to handle this?
