In anticipation of IBM’s V7R1 technology refresh 7, we’ve been working on an update to our popular RPG Toolbox™ product. It was the very first product for Linoma Software and is still one of our most popular tools. Thousands of IBM i shops have already used this tool to successfully modernize their RPG programs and convert their fixed format C specifications to free form.
The new RPG Toolbox version 5.0 will now also convert the traditional H, F, D and P specifications into free form syntax. It will include many customization options to allow you to choose how operations are converted and how the syntax will be styled.
The 5.0 release is planned for December and will allow the free form conversion to be performed from RDi, PDM and the command line. For more information about the new release of RPG Toolbox 5.0, check out the official announcement.
Current RPG Toolbox customers who are active on maintenance will be able to update to the new version at no additional charge. You can download a free trial of our current version and we’ll let you know as soon as the updates are ready.
