Playing with a RPG Subfile

ibm i rpg programmer

Poking around on the filthiest corners of the IBM i Programmers internet this morning, I stumbled across someone else’s sample subfile template for an RPG program. This is quite an old-style RPG program (it looks like it’s from around 2012) but should still work well today.

It looks quite nice, coded differently to my personal style so let’s (a) have a play with it, (b) see how it performs, then (c) modernize it to RPG /free and make some small tweaks to see if it can be improved:



IBM i Software Developer, Digital Dad, AS400 Anarchist, RPG Modernizer, Shameless Trekkie, Belligerent Nerd, Englishman Abroad and Passionate Eater of Cheese and Biscuits. Nick Litten Dot Com is a mixture of blog posts that can be sometimes serious, frequently playful and probably down-right pointless all in the space of a day. Enjoy your stay, feel free to comment and remember: If at first you don't succeed then skydiving probably isn't a hobby you should look into.
