25 years of experience or 1 year of experience repeated 25 times... I see it far too often.

Recent experiences...
"I'm more comfortable with fixed format"
"I like SEU"
"Really? You don't have to code /free and /end-free?"
"I've never seen **free"
"I've never seen RDi"

Bummer.  I was once called on the carpet for having the audacity to write a
program using free format.  But that was in 2000, and in a shop with one
other developer who had 17 years of tenure and who refused to join the 21st
century.  I would have thought that was a thing of the past by now, but,
sadly, apparently not.

That is the inhouse folks telling me that.

I noticed that Thomas works for Infosys.  His experience doesn't shock me
AT ALL.  The fact that a consulting company insists that their
code to the lowest common denominator is shameful.  If they had tried to
foist that crap on our team when I worked several years ago for a company
that "hired" Infosys, we would have raised holy hell. I do remember being
asked by an onsite Infosys programmer to explain some of my "exotic",
modern RPG code.

Thomas, I am curious, does Sysco have any in-house developers, and do
have any say in this?
