Which 5250 Screen Emulator shall I use?
The IBM i System, like its predecessors the AS400 and iSeries, uses something called 5250 to stream its data to a terminal, often called a green screen. You've seen these clunky old terminals in black and white sci-fi movies. We still use them... sort of... we use terminal emulators (software that emulates the functions of those old terminals) to type commands into a command-line interface using windows/linux/mac whatever.
So which one is best?

Let's talk about SUBFILE programming in RPG. If you have grown up through the world of AS400 a few decades ago, or through the wonderful ISERIES machines of the early 2000's then you *maybe* are using the current IBM i POWER SYSTEMS that replaced those old boxes. If that's the case, in most places you are using subfiles to display information on those smelly old green screen terminals. Writing a SUBFILE PROGRAM means knowing how to code them, ranging from simple full load, to expanding, to page at a time. Each type of Subfile has different programming styles... so let's dive in and have a play with SUBFILES in RPG Programming.

SEU, IBM's Source Entry Utility (aka Stoneage Editing Utility) is a basic green screen code editor. SEU runs exclusively in terminal mode, offering a solid (if outdated) source code editing tool. It's basic but has a long heritage and some very well known techniques... and some nifty secret tricks...

Using an IDE (integrated development environment ) for the IBM i Power System can seem daunting at first. It's a big upgrade for established programmers, comfortable using SEU.
But, modern IBM i professionals swear by the graphical IDE, particularly compared to older greenscreen coding environments like PDM and SEU. In this course we will cover all the main elements of using an IDE to write code in both RPGLE, CL, PF, LF , SQL, DSPF and PRTF and more.
