From others I was under the impression that they took the AS/SET generated
stuff and ran CVTRPGSRC against it and called it RPGLE. You can often
spot the stench if you see them take an external field name and rename it
in D specs (I specs in RPG/400) from a 7-10 character field name down to a
6 character name like this
D MY6CHR E EXTFLD(MY10CHARFD)
I* MY10CHARFD MY6CHR
Heck, AS/SET might have even made that a modification to their
generator. Provided you set a flag somewhere to generate RPGLE and not
RPG400.

But, we're getting into programming style and that's going to bore most of
the nonprogrammers on this list.

They never generated RPG II. Like me, you're lucky enough to have been
generating RPGLE for so long you've forgotten how bad RPG/400 was.
