Okay, I might as well vote...

I'm for whatever enhancements will make the language more powerful or useful as 
long as I'm not forced to use them. Like the Eval's extended F2, pretty cool 
but I don't HAVE to use it.

Just my 2 strips of gold pressed latinum,

Jerry

I support this point of view.....  I personally feel good about the
direction Han's and others are taking RPG.  Heaven forbid we might actually
have to learn something new.
And I feel I have the skill's to support multiple version's of RPG, however
the free form stuff has messed up my source code analyzers that worked off
fixed columns, but that a very small price to pay.

just a small side bar: It would be nice if IBM would include sample code in
the RPG library, to correspond with the manual and to demonstrate new
enhancements of the language or helpful API's.  In my opinion working source
code goes a long way in teaching new concepts...

my 2 cents, tim
