Everyone I hear from at the Toronto office is very committed to the legacy
languages.  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>.
