Could we get rid of display files all together? Some type of action in SEU 
(like a function
key) would cause SDA to be invoked. The display file code would become part of 
the
RPG program. The compiler would generate the 5250 data stream. Writing RPG would
then be more like the visual development tools (only in the fact that you work 
on the screen
and program code at the same time).
