I spent one day at COMMON last week and talked with several of the IBM
Canada RPG IV developers.  One of the questions that was asked was if IBM
could/should start charging for the RPGII and RPGIII compilers (some people
call RPGIII, "RPG400").

Anyway, I suggested that IBM should enhance RPG IV with two new features:

1) Allow blank lines in the source code
2) Support the compiler parameters in the H spec, and translate those parms
when the CVTRPGSRC command is used.

Without leading your responses: I'm wondering if you feel charging for
RPGIII would help/encourage you to move to RPGIV more aggressively?
