Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Here’s a useful site with lots of technical information, with many articles written by Jon Paris and/or Susan Gantner, two great educational resources.

Here are two articles which give some specifics on RPG /Free. There are others which build upon these, as new features have been introduced over the years.

    Jim Martin published a book "Free Format RPG-IV" available at Midrange.com that is very helpful.

    Many programmers like to see code samples. Websphere Development Studio Client (WDSc) provides a terrific tool which shows your code in free format. Just select a section of code, right click and select "Convert Selection to Free-Form". Immediately your code is converted. It also inserts /Free and /End-Free lines as needed to keep your program compile-able. (Is that a word?) If you don't like the results, just press Ctrl+Z to undo the conversion. IBM really did a good job on this feature.
