Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

One of the most common causes of bugs in traditional RPG applications is the use of global variables. Ever since the introduction of ILE and sub procedures, RPG has had the ability to have locally scoped storage. Proper use of scope can greatly reduce the possibility of introducing bugs into an application when making changes.

Learning Objectives:

1. Learn about using sub procedures and local scope for variables in RPG
2. Learn about using Linear Main Programs to add more scoping possibilities
3. Learn about locally scoped files and how they differ form traditional globally scoped file definitions
