API call in REXX/400

Is it possible to have an API call in REXX/400? If so, what is the syntax? How can I translate that to REXX? This is what the call looks like in CL: CALL PGM(RBTRCLLIB/RCLPOLLSTS) PARM(&CLIENT &RCLSTATUS &STATCODE).


Yes, you can make API calls in REXX/400. There are about 3 pages of rules for passing parameters and it is based on the language of the program you are calling. The links for the REXX manuals and most of the languages can be found at the Knowledge Links page.
