PS: Why would you want to convert RPG to C?  That would be truly ugly
code.  All of the bad things of RPG and the bad stuff from C!  The
worst of the worst so to speak!

About the only reason I can think of to do this is because you are
moving to a different platform altogether.  And even then, you might be
better off rewriting.

Amen!

I'm just getting started with C. Haven't done too much, but it's loaded
on my system where I work per my request from way back.

The NewsWire newsletter had some comments about C a few days ago
advocating it as a working language. I wrote the author (???), who
turns
out to work for the makers of this package Rio that converts RPG to C.
(Not RPGLE yet, though). I asked about materials for getting going with
C on the iSeries/As400, but there aren't many at all. He said their
programmers used the regular IBM guide on it.

Any recommendations? I am pretty good at using the IBm guides, but I
like learning shortcuts.
