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.
