FTN                                                        
    The type FORTRAN (FTN) creates a program from FORTRAN  
    source statements or edits FORTRAN source              
    instructions.                                          
PAS                                                      
    The type Pascal (PAS) edits Pascal source statements
    or creates a program from Pascal source statements.  
                                                         
PAS38                                                    
    The type Pascal (PAS38) edits Pascal or creates a    
    program from Pascal source statements.  PAS38        
    indicates that the source uses the System/38 naming  
    format (object.library).
PLI                                                 
    The type Programming Language I (PLI) creates a
    program from PL/I source statements or edits PL/I 
    source statements.                                
                                                      
PLI38                                                 
    The type Programming Language I (PLI38) creates a 
    program from PL/I source statements or edits PL/I
    source statements.  PLI38 indicates that the source  
    uses the System/38 naming format (object.library).   
SQLFTN                                                    
    The type Structured Query Language FORTRAN (SQLFTN)   
    creates a program from FORTRAN and Structured Query   
    Language statements or edits the contents of a source 
    file member that contains both SQL and FORTRAN        
    statements.                                           
SQLPLI                                                     
    The type Structured Query Language PL/I (SQLPLI)       
    creates a program from PL/I and Structured Query       
    Language statements, or edits the contents of a source 
    file member that contains both SQL and PL/I            
    statements.                                            

I guess with the SQL*** commands, the compilers are still supported on the
iSeries, i5, System i.... 

Can we do it?
Yes we can.

I'm pretty sure it was on the S/38 and we had a HUGE problem on an early
AS/400 years ago and we ended up with the entire set of ALL software
offerings from the local IBM office (we had two sets of bad tapes during an
upgrade that included a disk failure and some other stuff). And I could be
wrong but I thought Fortran was on one of those (?).

Fortran compiler on the i - Don't know but there was one on the  System/32.

Could it have made it to the S/34, 36, 38,  etc.?
