I doubt if you would get any speed advantage. I'm sure the compiler is more efficient, but any gain would probably be small. I take the approach of converting source when I need to make a change to it. Otherwise I leave it alone. You would have a big testing project if you were to convert all that code. I would think you would want to unit test each program and perform regression testing on the system. On 10/25/06, Brian Piotrowski <bpiotrowski@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx> wrote:
Hi All, I'm looking through our object directories, and I noticed we still have a lot of programs there were compiled in RPG (pre 5.x). Would there be any advantage for me to run the CVTRPGSRC on the source and recompile it again? Would I see any gains in speed with the converted programs? This would be under the assumption that I would not do anything but convert and compile (yet!). Thanks, Brian. -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- Brian Piotrowski Assistant Mgr. - I.T.
