Ah yes, the good 'ol non-observable program problem. How much would we all 
pay for a CISC execution environment on RISC models. IBM should be able to 
emulate a CISC processor on a RISC box. It would be slow, but at least te 
programs would run.

>CHKOBJITG.

Thanks to Peter, Al, and Phil. Heard of this command once before, but
hadn't thought of it.

>You can do a 'mass' convert on CISC objecst to RISC using the STROBJCVN

Were that only the case. Believe some may be vendor non-observables,
possibly w/o source. Will probably need to research the needles once
CHKOBJITG churns the haystack. Haven't been causing problems, but not
using all function yet. Easier to fix now than while implementing new
function.

Not at system, hoping CHKOBJITG allows &LIB/*ALL, or perhaps WHERE pgmnam
NOT LIKE 'Q%',
