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? -- James H. H.
