fixed

JD Edwards and wonderful, now there are two words that I never expect to see
close together. When I took their training and had to support their code I
was shocked at the lack of internal consistency (F1 being exit sometimes F3
others mind you this was many years after the AS/400 became available). They
were praising their new case tool, "WorldView" I think? Well I have to say
that perhaps you would have to be an above average RPG programmer to
decipher what the legions of RPG programmers had done over the many years.
Perhaps their code has gotten better over the years, but I strongly disliked
it when I had to support it and will NEVER take another contract where that
junk is in place.

These are my personal opinions and may or may not have any basis in reality
:-)
