Why kill your self with RPGIII with compile options you have to remember, 
just CVTRPGSRC and go RPGIV.  Your life would be much easier without
any downside.  We've been doing this for 3 years now.  We haven't 
experienced ANY downside to this approach.  
Make your source file the BIG size (Rec Len 112?).
