Someone mentioned here recently, that in an
upcoming release we would be able to specify ASCII data in our fields instead of
EBCDIC or the universal code. Would that make for a more interesting
I find it
interesting that the AS/400 vs. NT topic becomes a 5250 text vs. GUI
topic. They really aren't the same thing excepting that we see it that
AS/400 can do GUI and text
while NT seems to be pretty much GUI-centric. That says to me
the AS/400 has broader capabilities, doesn't it? What would happen if
the AS/400 green screen actually had a pale gray background? or if there
were more fixed-fonts to choose from, even if they were purchased add-ons
from 3rd party?
Please respond to
RE: AS/400 vs. NT
One of the interesting things about
gui applications is that most people who use them a lot rely on keystroke
combinations rather than the mouse to do things they do frequently.
