  • Is There Anything RPG in IBM i 7.3?

    The IBM i 7.3 announcement may seem to have arrived a little earlier than expected. The interval between 7.1 and 7.2 was four years so you may not have been expecting a new release just yet. So for you RPG developers out there, the question is: What’s in 7.3 for me?

    Evolving the Language - History of RPG IV Part 5

    At the end of the previous episode of this saga on the history of RPG IV, I mentioned that in this blog entry I would explain why the No. 1 outstanding user request (parameters for subroutines) was never implemented. So here's the story as best I remember it.
