I have only recently started to work on the AS/400 and have a question
for you specialists out there :

I am supposed to make a tool that recompiles all sourcefiles in a
certain library into a new library. In other worths, it should convert
sources into their data- or programobjects. This tool is written in
CL. I have no problem with most types of sources (PF, LF, RPG, CL,
DSPF, ...), but I can't find a way to automatically compile
MENU-objects. Manually this is done through the Screen Development Aid
tool (SDA). This tool compiles the two types of sources related to
menus (a displayfile and a messagefile) into the three objects that
make up a menu. My question now is if there is a way to do this
without using SDA ? (I haven't been very succesful with the createmenu
command CRTMNU)

Any help would be grately appreciated.

In article <4f3e05$>, From
(Wim Verstraeten), the following was written:

Use CRTS36MSGF to compile the command messages. Use CRTDSPF to compile
the display, and CRTMNU to create the menu object that ties them all
