While it might be true that you need to change, doing it cause it's the next "great thing" is given very little consideration in most shops. The people who attend most of these conferences are either: A: Selling somthing B: Trying to learn somthing C: Spending company money on a nice trip. D: Buying Somthing Managers do not condone the changing of working code, just cause we got the latest compiler in. I suspect(have no clue) that a greater number of shops have NOT converted to RPGIV but when ever somthing new comes along, RPGIV is the preferred language. You shouldn't confuse "stable" with "stagnant". That's what I believe, but it's only worth the cost of this email. +--- | This is the Midrange System Mailing List! | To submit a new message, send your mail to MIDRANGE-L@midrange.com. | To subscribe to this list send email to MIDRANGE-L-SUB@midrange.com. | To unsubscribe from this list send email to MIDRANGE-L-UNSUB@midrange.com. | Questions should be directed to the list owner/operator: firstname.lastname@example.org +---
