Maybe (??) RPG is the best programming language for business applications on IBM i, but imho, a programming environment that in November 2009 is still without those features you drool about, ought to be retired. You can blame IBM marketing or lack of it on the demise of the IBM i platform, it does not matter much. Adopting some common business terminology, the IBM i is a dog, and RPG should be delicately maintained by IBM until the bulk of businesses worldwide cease to use it.
