Found some more old documents (I didnt write them so dont shoot the poor AS400 programming messenger) that I’ve decided to move to the forum rather than leave in the dusty corners of my hard drive…..
1. Advantages of ILE:
RPG IV is more readable
Allows for greater application modularity with static binding which means there are fewer external calls.
Enhances programmer productivity by allowing greater code re use
Enhances mixed language support by allowing the binding ILE languages into a single program
Builds a foundation for the future by moving closer to object oriented design , modular programming and code reuse
Enhancements in RPGIV
Mixed Case entry permitted
Compiler is not case sensitive
Compiler can translate mixed case to upper case.
Character names allowed
Full DDS length supported
