Greg, I'm not sure if this was lost in the conversation, but there is a
difference between /free and **free.

/free and /end-free (which we've had for years now, and which are no longer
required in the latest compilers to be able to use) still limits code to
columns 8 through 80.

**free is much newer, only on v7r1 and up, and with appropriate TR & PTF
levels. You specify **free in columns 1 through 6 of the first statement
in your source. With this, you can put live code beginning in column 1 and
ending at whatever your line length happens to be.

Oh, and 112 is the default length for QRPGLESRC and is what I presume the
vast majority of shops use.

So the question is... can I change this (lengthen) without screwing up my
source? If so, what is a common length?
