A little known feature of RPG is the ability to create data areas (object types *DTAARA) that contain default H-specs (control specifications).  The RPG compiler uses a hierarchy to determine which H-spec to use.  If an H-spec is coded directly in the program, it will be used.  Otherwise, the compiler will look for the following data areas:

  RPG III RPG IV
Step Name Library Name Library
1 RPGHSPEC *libl RPGLEHSPEC *libl
2 DFTHSPEC QRPG DFTLEHSPEC QRPGLE
