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.

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!).
