I'm really struggling with the limitations of DDS. I did see this
preprocessor: http://rpglanguage.biz/copybook.html. Not being very

capable of allowing a /COPY in my DDS. Has anyone had any
experience with something like this?

understand the browser world.

We still have RPGII rolling around this system and all new development (aside from what I am working on) is in RPG/400. I am trying to convince our main programmer that RPGIV is worth using.
