I also found that making a couple of small callable programs with parms that did things like date math or get common data for an application allowed me to go into old programs and delete whole sections and bring program size way down before conversion. _______________________ Booth Martin Booth@MartinVT.com http://www.MartinVT.com _______________________ nina jones <email@example.com> Sent by: firstname.lastname@example.org 11/24/2000 09:24 AM Please respond to MIDRANGE-L To: MIDRANGE-L@midrange.com cc: Subject: Re: RPG IV Usage (was dds validity check) > Managers do not condone the changing of working code, just cause we got > the latest compiler in.

You shouldn't confuse "stable" > with "stagnant". several years ago, we went on a massive conversion to rpg iv, and found in some cases it made a mess. old, indicator heavy programs are really hard to work with! it's easier to clean up the indicators in the program using traditional rpg, in an 'indicator friendly' environment, and then convert it. but if the program has been stable for 10+ years, where is the justification? nj --- +--- | 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: email@example.com +---
