If you're paying around $1200 a seat per year, you're spending a whole boatload more on it than you should be. Our annual software assurance for 5 seats is around that.

subject: Re: [COBOL400-L] [EXTERNAL] Liam Alan on using VS Code for
COBOL (and RPG and CL)

Just to throw my 2ct into this discussion.

I think than VS Code with extensions is a great tool - but als long as you do
really serious development in COBOL or RPG on IBM i using the "classic"
source code store in physical source files als members, there is not really a
way around RDi.

And with yearly licensing around 1200$ per seat (and AFAIK you can get it
even cheaper) it's no so expensive compared to the machines.
