Actually, David, I think CL is ahead of RPG when it comes to prompting.
Consider that you can press F4 to prompt the command, press F4 inside of any
prompted parameter to prompt its values (it'd be nice to select!), and
control/restrict the values that are accepted in the parameters.

What does SEU give you with RPG or DDS? An ugly prompt that doesn't even
right-justify the length of a field.
