Posted on 2003-03-22

Last Modified: 2012-05-04
I have multiple libraries (eg. test vs. production vs. customer) and I need compare libraries against the newest production library, find the differences and sync the older versions with the new one.  I know of now way to do this within the standard AS400 frameword (I'm very new to AS400 so forgive my ignorance).  Is there a standard way to accomplish this (like with WinSQL) or another 3rd party tool that can do this for me.  RIght now, it's very labor intensive and error prone and I would love to automate it somehow.  Any and all suggestions appreciated.

Thanks, Bill

Hello wgrmba,

There are, as far as I know, 2 options.

Option 1:
Use te standard CMPLIB command that should be available in the TAATOOLS (for detail info see http://www.taatool.com/document/L_cmplib.htm)

Option 2:
Download the PCMPLIB tool from http://www.prosperosoftware.co.uk/software/as400/util/psputildoc.zip see detailed info on http://www.prosperosoftware.co.uk/software/as400/util/pcmplib.html

Have fun !!!!

Another option is the IBM file compare and merge utility

Hey Bill,
Do you need to compare on the source level or the compiled objects level?

or both :-( ?

Do you need to find out if your compiled objects match the sources?
