I think the problem is, most of us don't have a C compiler on the
box.  I know I don't, nor do any of the other 2 AS/400's we're
using.  It comes down to you use what you have, whether it's
best or not.  If I had a C compiler I would use it.  I don't have it,
so I'm not going to.

Regards,

Jim Langston
