You are right, that is the plan.  

Some of the programs that will need reference to the new file are old
programs though, with internally described screens, and are not a pretty
thing to see.  I rewrite a few of them as I come to them, even though the
client has said that externally described screens is not a goal nor even a
desired thing.  The few cvtrpgsrc that i attempted (for those programs)
turned into hornet's nests as I tried to even find out what the original
validations and functions were.  

In general though, converting to rpgle has been smooth and the right
choice.  Wish the debugger worked though.  :(
