Indented source in compile listings

If you use printed RPG programs to compile listings, here's a neat trick if you'd like to see indented source code.

By Debora Ames
On your compile listing parameters for the command CRTBNDRPG, one of the parameters is called INDENT - which is a source listing indentation. In the field for that parameter you specifies the characters that are used to mark the structured operation clauses. I like to use the | which is found underneath the backspace key (the last character on the same row as the "P"). This produces a neat line for you to follow the indention.
