If you’re an RPG programmer, you probably already know that the IBM i V7R1 Technology Refresh now supports free form syntax for H, F, D and P specs, as well as C specs.
Now that you’re no longer restricted to those traditional columns, you may be considering updating your code.
Fortunately, Linoma Software has just released version 5.0 of RPG Toolbox™ to help you do just that — modernize your RPG source code automatically using the new RDi plugin.
RPG Toolbox has been a popular tool for developers ever since the first release of free form RPG in V5R1. Millions of lines of legacy RPG source code have been successfully converted by Linoma Software customers using this software.
Now that we’ve added the RDi plugin, programmers can convert entire members or just selected blocks of source code. They can also indent their nested free form logic to make the code easier to read and maintain.
If you’d like to see RPG Toolbox in action, watch this webinar on demand where we’ll be demonstrating how easily RPG Toolbox converts traditional source code into totally free form syntax. Users can modernize their RPG code using the RDi plugin or use commands to convert from PDM or SEU.
