Fw: New RFE for your perusal

I started this on Midrange-l, but the discussion became about RDi rather than the RFE, so I am posting here.
The latest incarnation of free format starting in column 1 makes me believe that tools like Git are now even
more accessible, if only RDi would support IFS development better. iProjects don't work for me because
they are tied explicitly to a single library, and all source goes into source files which Git doesn't
really know about. A generic project is closer, allowing me to load source into text files and use source
control like Git as a repository. It even opens the files with the LPEX editor. But it doesn't allow me to
compile because I can't find the compile menu or commands in the customization dialog. On the other hand
creating an rpgle file in the IFS under RSE allows me to ed
 it and compile, but I can't put it under version control because the context menu doesn't contain the Team submenu.

Subject: New RFE for your perusal

I have entered a new RFE:
http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/rfe/execute?use_case=viewRfe&CR_ID=83582

This RFE is about moving forward in development with a goal of being able to do RPG development in
conjunction with GIT. I know some people already do this, but it seems a bit hard to do. I am looking for a more
hierarchical approach. An enhancement to the iProject perspective.

Stripping CR from text files

Has anybody noticed that when editing an ASCII text file in the IFS that 
RDi will strip the CRs leaving only LFs?

I only just noticed it and really I thought I would have seen it before 
this.  But maybe it's something people have seen before.  Or maybe it's 
a setting somewhere that I missed.  The files are CCSID 437 and they 
come up in the editor fine, but after I save them I go in and look and 
magically all my 0D0A have been changed to 0A only.

Yay!  Yeah,not so much - other editors find it annoying.  :)

Hands-on RDi labs resurrected and refreshed


Hello everybody,
I am excited to announce that I have refreshed the RDi hands-on labs that
are available to everyone at http://ibm.biz/rdi_labs
The labs are now at RDi 9.5 and will show off new features like the
embedded emulator.  Over time we would like to add some new labs for brand
new features of the product.
All the necessary libraries, and compiler (supporting fully form RPG) is
supplied by IBM on a publically available IBM i.  For those don't have RDi,
just download a trial, for those who do, have fun exploring features you
haven't put into your regular toolbox yet.

HTH

RDi 32-bit usage on Windows


We are investigating to what extent RDi users employ 32-bit on Windows.
Windows 7 is the only operating system where the 32-bit version is
currently supported.  On 64-bit operating systems, the installation default
is to install 64-bit RDi but there is an option to install 32-bit RDi.

If you are running Windows, please let us know the following:

1)  If running Windows 7, are you running the 32-bit version of the
operating system?
To check: in the Control Panel, open System and Security > System and look
at the System type value

2)  If running Windows, are you running with 32-bit version of RDi?
To check: in IBM Installation Manager, open File > View Installed Packages,
select RDi and look at the Architecture value in the Details area at the
bottom.

Thanks,
Eric

Variables values cannot be displayed in debug

I am debugging a rather large program on a remote system.
I can step through the program but I can't display any variable values.

I read a previous post where it talked about the display of values when you hover a cursor over a variable was
only available if "All the rich functionality is available".
I'm not sure what this means and how do I tell if this is available in that environment I'm debugging.

Guidelines for WDSCI-L mailing list

Monthly posting of the guidelines for participation in the Websphere
Development Studio Client and Rational Developer for i mailing list.

Keep to the subject.  The topic of the list is IBM's Rational Developer
for Power Systems, Rational Developer for i, and Websphere Development
Studio Client.  This includes all aspects of RDp / RDi / WDSCi. 
Including, but not limited to: RSE, LPEX, Compiling, Verification,
and CODE/400.

NOTE: EGL, Java, and Web development topics are better served in 
the lists specific to those topics.

Limited discussion of third party plug-in's is also allowed.  It is, 
however, recommend that questions about third party (non-IBM), non-open
source, plug-in's be directed to the vendor's technical support group.

Please be aware ... a number of IBM employees monitor this mailing list
and will offer help when possible.  Please keep in mind that the IBM'ers
participate in this list on their spare time and so may not be able to
respond promptly if at all.

When starting a new discussion thread, *PLEASE* try to avoid replying to
an existing message to get the correct email address.  When you reply to
an existing message, most email clients and the list archiving software
think that the new thread is part of the old thread, and will display it
as such.

When quoting messages, do not quote the entire message.  Just quote the
parts that are needed to make the appropriate references.

Invitation: iSphere Plug-in 2.8 released


Hi Folks, It is time to update your iSphere plug-in to version 2.8.0. Here
is the list of features we added to the new version: * iSphere for RDi 9.5+
(additions) The RDi 9.5 additions fix the problem that the date of the
source lines is set to the current date when a source member is saved from
the iSphere Compare/Merge editor. * New context menu option "Copy member(s)
to" to copy source members directly from a source member filter much like
the same as PDM option 3 on the green screen. * New context menu option
"Copy members" to copy source members from the source file search result
view. * New option "Delete LPEX task tags" to remove obsolete task tags
from the LPEX task tags view. Necessary, e.g. when a source has been delete
on the host. * New hex editor for user spaces. * Filter for the message
monitor. * New handler that let you set a service entry point with a user
defined option from PDM within an iSphere 5250 session. * iSphere 5250
emulator (based on TN5250J). The "TN5250J - 5250 Emulator für RDi" emulator
provided by Task Force-IT has been added to the iSphere project. Please
remove the Task Force 5250 emulator if you want to install the iSphere 5250
emulator. The Task Force emulator will be removed from the Task Force web
page with the availability of iSphere 2.8.0. Please use "Install New
Software..." to update to 2.8.0 in order to select the new features. The
update sites are available at:
http://isphere.sourceforge.net/eclipse/rdi8.0/
http://isphere.sourceforge.net/eclipse/wdsci7.0/ Notice: You do not
necessarily need to update the iSphere library on your IBM i when
installing 2.8.0. But you need to update the library when you want to use
the following new features and fixes: * iSphere handler to start the LPEX
editor from an iSphere 5250 session * Removed hard-links between service
programs (bug fix) * Bug fix in STRPREPRC utility A lot of the new features
have been realized because of your feedback. Feedback is important for us.
If you think something is bad, please let us know about it. If you think

Re: RDI 9.5.0.2 Function keys stop working in Debug...

Ken,

I'm sure you've probably already tried this, but sometimes the function 
keys become disabled when RDi has the focus in the wrong view. (The icons 
for these functions also get disabled.) I've been able to get them working 
by simply clicking in the "Debug" view (the tab labeled Debug--not the 
perspective). So simply "Flip" to the Debug view (perhaps also the editor 
view--I'm not sure about that) and see if your function keys are working.
