I have the same problem. It was bran spanking new and a week later the announcement for RISC can out. We are using the CISC AS400 9402-200/2030 for our Disaster Recovery site, mirroring transactions to it and sending some live transactions to be processed. I can, and has, handled 100% of our transactions. But as we grow and develop more robust applications, it is a pain to compile to V3R2 on the RISC box so as to not use functions not available for that machine. Sure would like to see all rpg and CL functions ptf'd to V3R2. Come on IBM development staff, don't give in to your marketing department desire to force all the CISC to upgrade to RISC when they don't need the performance gains. -----Original Message----- From: Scott Klement [mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org] Sent: Friday, July 30, 1999 12:35 PM To: RPG400-L@midrange.com Subject: Re: RPG IV and CF-spec "keep it IBM" Dave... Amen on the V3R2 issue. This is something I struggle with every day. V3R2 is the newest release that will run on a ton of AS/400's. Our company bought an Advanced Series AS/400, a brand new black-box AS/400 before the RISC machines were out, at the end of 94. Yet, by 96 (less than 1.5 years of use) I was told that the OS was basically not upgradable. I could no longer get any of the new features and was stuck with it. Now, I'm not looking for ALL of the new features of V4, but are the changes to RPG so profound that they can't be done on a CISC machine? (As IBM has already told me!) Our machine isn't slow for what we use it for. Its Y2K compliant, it doesn't need to be upgraded. It frustrates the heck out of me that I need to replace my hardware just because people have arbitrarily decided that V3R2 is "dead".
