Hi Guys,

There I go, trusting to faulty recollection.  Does that mean I suffer
brain farts?  Does that mean I'm getting old?  Does that mean I'm a
candidate geezer?  I'll have to start my sentences with "You young
felllows ..." or "I remember when ..." or "In my day we ..."  Aaarrrrgghh!

I am sure I saw something years ago indicating that the last RPG program
had been removed from the system.  Of course that doesn't mean RPG
programs have not been added later -- although Dave's comment suggests
that the EDTLIBL processor has not changed in years.  I should verify
these things before I state them as fact.  Sorry.

On my 440 system I see 305 RPG programs in the various Q* libraries.

Library Count   Product
======= =====   =======
QDMT    207     Application Dictionary Services
QUMEDIA 6       Ultimedia System Facilities
QSYS    27      Various
QPFR    14      Performance Tools
QMPGLIB 34      Performance Management
QIXA    7       ISDB

The difference between 295 and 305 is accounted for by PTFs for the
various products.
