Joe, I think the only real point for VARPG is for RPG programmers to be 
able to do GUI client/server competitively.  I'd doubt any Visual Basic 
programmer would see any reason to learn RPG so he could use VARPG.   But 
if a shop is RPG and has to develop client/server applications this is an 
option, since the RPG programmers already know the shop's RPG 
applications, data, and business rules.

        Subject:        Re: Why not use VA/RPG


I was showing a simple app to some people yesterday and the first
question I got was, "How does this compare to VB for performance and
size of executables?" They also wanted to now how large the runtime
support was. My book says to plan for 4-5 floppies for the runtime files
and 1 for the application? Is this pretty accurrate? The runtime support
is multiple DLL's that are about 6mb and a normal application under
1.3mb? Obviously the size of the application is going to vary based on
what is does. Is there a guideline anywhere to help judge PC
requirements for your application?
