The Latest in RPG: It just keeps growing and growing and …

RPG is at the heart of the vast majority of IBM i applications and it gets better and better with each new release. In this session, Jon discusses and demonstrates the latest additions to the language, including 7.4’s support for dynamically sized arrays, and procedure overloading. Other topics include updates to data definition, and a brief look at the DATA-INTO and DATA-GEN op-codes. If there’s any time left there’s lots of other recent enhancements we can take a look at! If you’ve ever been tempted to think of RPG as an old stagnant language – think again!
