i used FndStrPdm to identify programs that use MULT 10000.01 to convert the date. i frown upon this, and want to change this process. i converte all of these programs to RPGLE, albeit fixed-format, in 2010.
what argument can i use to convince my boss that it would be a good thing to convert these to either a data structure, procedure, etc.?
i am not certain how to test this, nor am i convinced which NEW method would be best. i have used the data structure method since the late days of the /34 (yes, i'm that old) but i dont have a reference as to which is a faster method.
of course a sub-program or procedure is my preference, but i need ammunition to convince my boss to allow me to change the way that 47 pages of source members function.
thanks for all suggestions, except the one that i seem to get most of all, telling me "where to go." :)
