::::UNIX/NT environments. Their intention is to replace all AS400 apps/hardware
::::within 6-9 months with C++ developed apps rather than upgrading our CISC
::::(which is somewhat CPU deprived ). There will be telephony apps/hardware
::::integrated into the environment (stuff we don't have currently but would
::::like to have). Is the 6-9 months time frame realistic for replacing our
::::current RPG stuff?

Done wrong, it can be incredibly horrible.
