SLIC Distributor/400



Useful tool to create distribution sources.  These are source files which will create all sources and object necessary in a single step.  The file is simply loaded on the target AS/400, compiled and then executed given a target library.

SLIC Distributor/400 will create all necessary sources and objects.

Definitions are created using a series of commands (usually in a CL program) that build the distribution.

All programs on this site are in SLIC-Distributor format.  This is so I can support the alrgest nubmer of releases possible and to make installing relatively easy.

How to use

Use the source in QBUILDSRC/SSLDIST for examples on how to build distributions.

Commands supplied are:

  •     SSLCRTDIST              Create a distribution (must be done first)
  •     SSLADDDSRC           Add source to a distribution
  •     SSLADDDCMD           Add a command to a distribution
  •     SSLADDDDTA            Add data area (and contents) to distribution
  •     SSLADDDMSG           Add message(s) to a distribution
  •     SSLRTVMSGD            Retrieve message description (used by SSLADDDMSG)


The file specified on the SSLCRTDIST command will be used to execute the distribution.
