Is there an IBM-supplied file that cross-references all programs with one another? I want to change a program and need to know all the programs that call it before making the changes.
I'm not aware of any pre-existing IBM system file to do what you want, but you can create your own cross-reference by issuing the following command:
DSPPGMREF PGM(*ALLUSR/*ALL) OUTPUT(*OUTFILE) OBJTYPE(*ALL) OUTFILE(MYLIB/MYFILE)
The only limitation on this technique is that it won't find programs that are called as a variable name through another program.
