IMHO, it would only have been a problem back in the early 70's when machines had 16 - 32K of memory. ;-)

Still begs the question. ILE/RPG is a C type language. What could you
possibly need 4K of static storage for an empty program for?

I have been using since 6.1 and have not had any issues. It leaves a

the MAIN keyword, a single procedure doing nothing and NOUNREF used
with no debugging information needs 4k of static storage. The same
thing in a C program needs 270 bytes.

Because RPG is not C?
