There is an excellent reason - I am awfully lazy. I mean write an RPG program JUST to remove Nulls from one string. Surely there must be some way short of that. If not I have wasted 31 years riding this box, whatever they choose to call it.

The "lazy" way to do things is whatever is the path of least
resistance. For a lot of people, in the time it took for you to read
this e-mail thread, they could have already written the RPG wrapper
and moved on to the next problem.

Others just go ahead write everything in RPG, period. Then there is no
time wasted choosing which language, no mental energy wasted in
remembering which language has which functions.

I won't speak to whether your 31 years have been wasted, but I would
say that the path of least resistance is different for different
people, and since we don't know what comes easiest to *you*, we are
just throwing suggestions out there to see what sticks.
