Appendix F. Differences in S/38 CL

Even though it’s difficult to find a System/38 in production, there is still a lot of S/38 code running on i5, iSeries, and AS/400 machines. The programmer who has to maintain S/38 code must understand the changes that IBM made to CL when the AS/400 was introduced. This chapter points out the most important differences.

Objects

The i5 server defines many object types that did not exist on the S/38.
