IBM have a similar product to Bob's called Code/400.  You can find it at
IBM's web site http://www.software.ibm.com/ad/varpg/  It does "offline"
syntax checks with a few caveats: you need to have the DDS source downloaded
to your PC as well as the RPG.  The syntax check option shows you all the
errors, but it will not create an executable program that you can actually
run and test with.  To do that, you need to be connected to an AS/400.
Code/400 is packaged with a product called Visual Age for RPG.  VaRPG is an
RPG IV based PC programming language that shares some traits with Visual
Basic or Visual C++.

Aldon also have a PC based editor called Flex/Edit.  See them at
http://www.aldon.com/  I used Flex/Edit many years ago (before anybody else
had a Windows based AS/400 editor) and really liked it.  

Editing your code on a PC is far more enjoyable than using SEU.
