There, there.

Glad to hear the OS/400 PL/I compiler isn't entirely dead (although I
don't anticpate ever having to change so much as one line of CRTMIPGM).
Wouldn't it be nice if Java had been designed by Object PL/I (yes, there
really was such a thing) jocks, rather than C++ jocks? Wouldn't it be
nice if somebody ported Object PL/I to the JVM?

BTW, has anybody ported PL/I to Linux? MacOS?
