System/36 Procedure question

I am attempting to modify what I believe is an old S/36 procedure because some filename changes by a software vendor have rendered them useless. I have very little experience programming on an iSeries, let alone in an S/36 environment.

I am using the following:
System i 525 Power 6
OS version V5R4M5

The source file for the procedure I am trying to modify is QS36PRC. I can access the source, make the necessary change (change the name of a file it is referencing) and then save the source.

If I run the program at this point, it still fails on the same line. I am assuming that I first need to recompile the program from source for the change to take effect.

My question is, how do I recompile the program? Digging through what reference material I could find, I found some methods of compiling such as RPGC (within the S/36 env) or CRTS36RPG. All of these commands fail claiming the library #RPGLIB was not found. This error returns 0 results on Google.

Can someone point me in the right direction to solve this problem?

OCL is not compiled - it is interpreted.  QS36PRC is the source file for OCL procedures.  

Use SEU to make the change, save it, and you should be good to go.  You say "run the program" - do you mean "start the procedure"?  How, exactly do you kick off the procedure?

Suggest you post the OCL and the error message you are getting here.  My S/36 is rusty, but I may be able to help.

Gary, thanks for the help. With your suggestions I was able to get started and fix some of these old procedures. I am running into a different problem on a few of them that I will post as a new question. If you can, I would appreciate any help you can offer on that.
