Boris, This is where my lack of "purity" will shine thru. But, I prefer to use each tool for what it is best at. C is very good at string manipulation, bit twiddling, buffer manipulation, and crazy screwy weird stuff. RPG is no fun at all doing these kind of things. C sucks at working with "native" AS/400 externally described files (device or database). On the other hand, RPG excels at doing these things! So, I use RPG modules to do the normal as/400 file manipulation and C to do the "fun" stuff. Yes, you can use a hammer to drive a screw...but it wont be pretty and generally makes a mess.
