Book Review: Functions in Free-Format RPG IV

This one short volume manages to essentially be both a general introduction and a detailed reference.

With Functions in Free-Format RPG IV, Jim Martin has done it again. Jim has a particular expertise in taking a highly technical topic and distilling it into just a couple of hundred pages, making it accessible to any IBM i programmer. Jim also has a knack for identifying just the right balance of general knowledge and technical detail, and this book demonstrates that sense of balance.
