We are addressing the need to go from V3R2 on our development box to a RISC machine at V3R7, or higher. There are things you can do in full-blown V3R7 RPG IV that just don't work under V3R2. We are forced to develop in V3R2, although our main production box is at V3R7 (a 2-way Model 530), and our machine in Australia will soon be upgraded to V3R7. Since V3R2 is the end of the line as far a CISC goes, it makes sense to upgrade the development box, rather than bogging down the users by moving development back to the main production box. -- Francis Lapeyre email@example.com ____________________________________________________________ | | |"The probability of life originating from accident is | |comparable to the probability of the Unabridged Dictionary | |resulting from an explosion in a printing factory." | | | | --Prof. Edwin Conklin | |____________________________________________________________| ****** Unsolicited commercial e-mail is not tolerated here. ******* ****** Senders of such mail do so at their own peril. ******* ****** A copy, complete with header, is forwaded to the ******* ****** originating ISP for action. ******* Opinions are my own.
