I would venture a guess that overloading, while a great feature, is likely very low on the adoption scale.

Subject: Re: Will RPG eve become an object-oriented language?

It was discussed over 20 years ago and was rejected then as it should be now.

That's not to say that there aren't a few more OOP type features that would be nice - and indeed some have already been added (overloading for example)

How about start thinking of turning RPG into an OOL?
Is that in mind at IBM?

I think that would be just GREAT!
