Indeed, there is *nothing* wrong with traditional RPG format, period. And personally, I still think that IBM could have made much better use of their time turning the long-forgotten PL/I compiler (what was that alphabet soup for "not-a-LPP"?) into a LPP, instead of trying to make RPG look like a cross between PL/I and QBASIC.
