You're welcome. 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.
