But Larry, if the builder has 1 carpenter he only has to buy 1 air-nailer and if necessary it can be shared with other carpenters. Companies that have 500 developers find it more difficult to purchase 500 RDi licenses and they can't be shared.

Subject: Re: SEU %scanRpl produces RNF0604 error when prompting, but compiles without error
IBM Decided to spend their money on one tool that has vastly more capability and more opportunity for enhancement. It's also based on tools used for other languages so it's familiar to many many more developers than SEU.
Were IBM to continue to maintain both tools there would be either fewer features in RDi or both it and SEU would be more expensive.
And there is no force. You can continue to utilize SEU for your editing you will simply find that you are becoming less and less efficient while with RDi you become more and more efficient.
IBM Quit manufacturing AS/400s and then iSeries and then System i. They didn't do so to force you to buy a Power System they did so because Power Systems are far superior in capability and performance. You can still run an AS/400 (and some DO!) but you'll spend much more money for the same performance.
As to the cost, that argument doesn't hold water for me. It's like a builder who refuses to purchase an air-nailer for his carpenter because it's expensive and the hammer he already owns still works.

No, IBM decided to force people to buy RDi by stopping to update SEU--
with new releases. I am using at work great but you have to buy and a
lot companies won't buy.

There was a time when IBM created FSEDIT. It was warmly welcomed
because it was such an improvement over the SEU of the time.
Now we get awesome tools like RDi and we bash them? I don't get it.
I don't see anyone actually bashing RDi, so I guess you mean folks
are bashing IBM. Well, perhaps the situation is different now, but I
don't know. Was FSEDIT expensive and SEU out of date with respect to

SEU frozen at v6r1. Anything above that level will not work. Stinks
big time. Have to get RDI if you want syntax checking.
