I have been reading up on the free-form RPG that is part of IBM’s Technology Refresh 7. Something that isn’t immediately clear to me is whether or not the /COPY and /INCLUDE compiler directives are going to be allowed or not. I have read where they only allow /IF, /ELSE, and /ENDIF within a free-form statement. Is it safe to assume that the other directives can still be used as long as it’s not “within” a free-form statement? If not, that would be a problem since all our prototypes are stored outside of our applications.
In case you are wondering...I would try it myself, but we don't have everything installed yet to use it.
