No need to change if it still works just fine for you. I do bleeding edge Java because there is no other cross-platform language I can code in, not because it is new ( I have enough new stuff to learn, thank you..). I have a 386 running Windows for Workgroups 3.11 as my primary 5250 client at work because I don't NEED a P4 for terminal emulation. (What a geezer!) But, I can't avoid the RPG IV learning curve for ever (and don't tell me that that there is no learning curve, I have written a little in RPG IV, it is VERY different from RPG III). However, I DO like the format and the language certainly seems to have a more natural syntax when I have to move between Java, C++ and RPG in a day AND the Relational Web platform we use (sweet!) is written in RPG IV. The verdict: I will become an RPG IV programmer, and soon, but not because I want to. I have to. I take my spinach the same way..... Yeah, I'm joking, in a grumpy kind of way.
