I believe Rochester owns the precompiler.  I really don't think they 
give a rip about RPG period,  so it's hard getting any thing done.
It's a single pass precompiler,  which is why you can't have the 
FETCH physically before the DECLARE etc in your program code.  It S@#$%^
If anyone is listening from Rochester would love to hear from you 
on this matter.
