>>> If you are comparing languages in 1999, you can't use COBOL/400 which hasn't had any money pumped into it for years. Compare RPGIV to one of the COBOL compilers in the PC world where there are daily enhancements! <<< You may be comparing to COBOL/400, but I'm not. I'm comparing it to ILE COBOL which has had millions of $ pumped into it over the last few years. The pace of enhancements has slowed over the last couple of releases but it was a brand new compiler for V3R1. Lets compare apple to apples. Comparing with a PC COBOL is pointless - I can't use that on my AS/400. A more valid comparison would be with Java which at least runs on the AS/400. +--- | This is the COBOL/400 Mailing List! | To submit a new message, send your mail to COBOL400-L@midrange.com. | To subscribe to this list send email to COBOL400-L-SUB@midrange.com. | To unsubscribe from this list send email to COBOL400-L-UNSUB@midrange.com. | Questions should be directed to the list owner/operator: firstname.lastname@example.org +---END
