Most RPG programmers don't know the C programming language and avoid technical articles or discussions that have anything to do with it. Until 1993, so did I. That year, I took some college classes in which C was the only language that could be used for assignments. I found that C was very different from RPG, but writing my own functions was very appealing. When I returned to an RPG environment in 1994, I assumed that I would not see any C programming again. In late 1994, however, IBM introduced RPG IV and ILE. At that point, integrating C functions with RPG IV programs became a possibility.
