Mark, that's a great idea if CVTRPGSRD comes with the ILE compilers. I
haven't used it much so forgot about it. The biggest issue is source
comparison. If we converted the original source first and saved it as
"original", then we could more easily find any changes.

Dear Loyd:

Why do you feel you need both compiler sets (OPM and ILE)? You could run

any RPG/400 source through the CVTRPGSRC command for programs you need
to customize, and compile them with CRTBNDRPG with ACTGRP(*DFTACTGRP) --

aka. "OPM compatibility mode" ... since they will run in the default
activation group, they should behave the same as their original RPG/400
counterparts (except of course, any custom modifications, which is the
whole point of this exercise, right?).

Or am I "missing" something?

Congrats! Do you run any vendor software that you need to customize or
recompile? Our vendor-supplied ERP is Synon generated RPG, but we do a
lot of in house development in ILE. V6R1 will hurt us on requiring
compiler sets, as we do customize the vendor's package.
