Don't you mean that AS/400 now uses "real" stdio (i.e., file descriptors)
rather than the previous "fake" stdio via files STDIN and STDOUT that were
a holdover from EPM?

Surely RPG can use "real" stdio via the C functions (e.g., printf, getc,
gets, etc.?  Isn't that the same as the COBOL DISPLAY and ACCEPT functions
which is what I presume you mean?
