Add OBJECT ATTRIBUTE (PF, PRTF, LF, C, RPGLE, etc.) to the object selection for QGYOLOBJ API.
Using only the object type (*FILE, *PGM, etc) with QGYOLOBJ is okay, but in the specific case of object type *FILE, there are so many variations, DDM, PF, LF, PRTF, and so on.
Often when you specify *FILE you only want one of those subtypes or object attributes (such as PRTF). However, since *FILE is specified, you get a list of 100,000,000 database files along with the 30 PRTF's you actualy want. So you have to filter them out. Building that list can take "centuries".
Please add the ability to filter the resultSet, obviously for better performance, using the Object Attribute.
Do not place IBM confidential, company confidential, or personal information into any field.
