Perhaps this gentleman is looking for the C type capabilty of having
parameters like the function printf(char *, ...); the elipses in C means
that any number of paramters may follow 0 to N. If so then RPG currently
does not support this (although I wish it would).

BTW I love the try catch or the Try Catch Finally metaphore used in Delphi
and Java. Perhaps we could get that set up in RPG <hint hint nudge nudge>
