It appears to me that Open I/O could signal a new level of cooperation
between IBM and 3rd party vendors to extend RPG's reach to new devices and
databases. ..., then it would be possible for 3rd parties to write generic
Open I/O handlers to implement various data management and device
management operations while maintaining a familiar, streamlined, and
consistent programming interface.
This topic has triggered a number of ideas about extending RPG's reach to
other database platforms, and UI devices.
