There was just an email sent out to get some input from the user community at large as to what things we might like to see in upcoming versions of the RPG compiler. Some of it was VERY cool, like a direct file type for IFS files, data queues and sockets. What they will have the money to implement is a different issue, of course, but I definitely think it would be premature to say that RPG is dead <smile>.
