For the most part, RPG II runs fine on the 400. From what I've heard (I'm
not a 36 expert at all), there are probably things to change having to do
with displays, output files, etc. However, you could just run everything in
the S36 environment for a while.

There is a migration aid for going to the 400 and that'll have more
details. The manual is available at <>. Just follow
the links to the online library.

There's also the matter of performance. Check out the relative performance
of these machines. All other 400s are measured in terms of the B10.

Others will know much more about this than I do.
