I know similar discussions like this have happened before, but this is more
of the real deal. I thought I would start it here, if it moved to the RPG
list that is fine.

A co-worker and I where talking about the possibility of OpenRPG and/or
OpenCOBOL. Where the compiler would be source-compatible with OS/400 and
other COBOL/RPG compilers. So you can, for instance, test and run
development programs on a Linux or Windows box and then move into production
on OS/400 or maybe even production on this linux/windows server. The
possibility is there of using mySQL for the backend DB. What are your
thoughts on this? We are talking source NOT binary compatible.

Let me know if there is interest in this. We are going to see what the
interest level is, then decide if we have enough help to work on this.
