I see your point.  However, anyone savvy enough to create their own bif's 
and register them to an area recognizable by the compiler this shouldn't 
be an issue.
Now, when it comes to end programmers, that's a different story.  Using my 
own experience with my first use of QTmmSendMail (and I am only talking 
about the binding, prototyping, etc and not the mime formatting etc) I can 
understand what you are saying.  It might take a day or two to adapt. Then 
again, I can remember showing a programmer analyst with years of 
experience on the S/36 and 400 how to use a SETLL and READ in RPG. 
Sometimes you just have to adapt.

Maybe I understate this.  We did contract Jon Paris to come on site and 
formally train us in RPGILE, (and again in CODE/400).  And I did go to 
every session about binding and binder language, etc at the next COMMON 
until I drove him and Susan nuts.  And I did buy, on hardcopy, the redbook 
"Who knew you could do that with RPG..." (and had Jon and Susan sign it). 
Jon's signature has "I thought you knew this stuff already!" in it.  Once 
if finally sunk into my thick head that it really is that easy it was a 
piece of cake.

I do not understand subprocedures all that well, but I do know that to use 
a
%bif I only need to use it.  I don't have to bind, or compile my programs 
in
any special way.  For someone on RPGIII, using %bif() is easy to learn. 
Using his/her first subprocedure will not be an easy task. 

 

At  least it wasn't for me.

I read that article.  Some good points, some interesting concepts.

Technically I do think IBM allows us to create our own bifs - they're

called subprocedures.  Maybe you can't put a percent sign in front of your

own.  Then again, if it was required it might drive some people nuts like

having to put a semicolon at the end of a free format rpg statement seems

to send some people into an epileptic fit.
