What's New for RPG with 7.3 and 7.4 PTFs - Find out about the recent enhancements to RPG for 7.3 and 7.4 that you can get with PTFs.

4. Debug the return value for a procedure

2. OPTIONS(*EXACT) to control what can be passed as a parameter
3. Option for %TIMESTAMP to return a unique timestamp
4. Easier coding for %KDS

Barbara Morris - Barbara Morris is the lead developer for the RPG compilers in the IBM Toronto Lab. She has been working on the RPG compilers since she started at IBM in 1989 after receiving a Computing Science degree from the University of Alberta. The first enhancement she developed was the ENDIF/ENDDO opcodes for RPG/400 in V2R1. Some of her most recent enhancements were the ON-EXIT and DATA-INTO opcodes and varying-dimension arrays. A few of the other notable enhancements that she developed for RPG include subprocedures, qualified data structures, call-interaction with Java, Open Access: RPG Edition, and fully-free-form RPG.
