 >> Do you think it would be useful for RPG to allow READ into or WRITE from
data structures for externally-described
files?

It would also be useful to be able to use a variable name to control the format
used, as you can in COBOL. For programming ICF in particular this can save
muchos code as you often need to simply write back the format that you just
read.
