ILE RPG Built-in-functions. %ABS – Absolute Value of Expression. %ADDR – Get Address of Variable. %ALLOC – Allocate Storage. %CHAR – Convert to. In addition, under OS/ V3R2 and V3R7 the %PARMS built-in function was introduced. Since then, several built-in functions have been added to RPG IV. ‘1’ if the most recent file input operation or write to a subfile (for a particular file, if specified) ended in an end-of-file or beginning-of-file condition.

The newly allocated storage is uninitialized. The two operands must be numeric values with zero decimal positions.

Netty Franssen maakt ook bijzonder mooie dingen. There is nothing special you need to do to use built in functions however.

The function returns a pointer to the allocated storage. The system knows the format of the input in this case.

If the value of the numeric expression is non-negative, the value is returned unchanged. Sign-up for e-mail notifications Take our weekly poll. All three must have the same type. When the string parameter is varying length, the values of the other parameters are checked against the current length, not the maximum length. The result is a time or timestamp value with the appropriate number of minutes added or subtracted. The third parameter represents the starting position, measured in buit, for the replacement string.


The string may be any character, graphic, or UCS-2 field or expression. Another useful feature of built-in functions is that they can simplify maintenance of your code when used on the definition specification.

%SCANR (Scan Reverse for Characters)

If the storage addressed by the pointer is shorter than indicated by the length parameter, either An error will occur Data corruption will occur.

If the first parameter is a functiosn, do not specify the second parameter. If either operand rpggle an integer numeric value, the result is integer. The value returned by the function is compatible with both type numeric and type duration. The second parameter is the portion that you want to extract.

Built-in Functions

If the parameter is not specified, the number of characters replaced is the same as the length of the replacement string. If zero is specified, then the replacement string is inserted before the specified starting position. For all other data types, the value returned is the number of bytes of the value. The result is a date or timestamp value with the appropriate number of years added or subtracted.


The Economy of Motion. The first three parameters can be of type character, graphic, or UCS These named constants can be used in any specification. Most built in functions accept parameters which can be coded in parenthesis.

If the operation cannot complete successfully, exception or is issued. For information on the input formats that can be used, see Date Data Type. The result has the same sign as the dividend. If the length refers to characters beyond the end of the string, then a run-time error dunctions issued. If not specified, it defaults to The character constant can be a character or hexadecimal literal or constant name that represents a character or hexadecimal literal.

The parameter must be a non-float numeric value with zero decimal places. The edit word must be a character constant. The third and fourth parameters must be non-float numeric values with zero decimal positions.
