True, Justin - you're repeating what others have said - IBM i is
object-based, not object-oriented. The objects are like OO in that each
object has attributes and methods - things you can ask to be done and
things that are just a part of it, like the security functionality.
There is also a certain level of inheritance - SQL tables and PFs are
both built around a thing called a space, which has functionality needed
for everything derived from it. But a PF and an SQL table have certain
attributes that distinguish one from the other - you can see this in the
first section of DSPFD.
None of this, basically translates into what we do in RPG. I think Mark
Waterbury said the same, a little bit more briefly, right?

subject: Re: Will RPG eve become an object-oriented language?
One thing to consider and have in mind is that the IBMi operating system
"is" an object-oriented operating system, and it is full of many types of
objects. So, why not drive RPG into something that supports the same
approach as its own host OS? :-)
