I took an RPG programming language course on one, I think.

What?? You were working on Role Playing Games way back then!! ;-P

The RPG would be Report Program Generator. About the same time I was
punching cards of programs written in Fortran and COBOL, three were
business machines from IBM that were primarily running RPG.

Thanks Mark. I figured the "RPG" in Ron's post was probably some sort of computer programming language.

RPG is a programming language and is compiled with an RPG-Compiler.
The resultant code is interpreted as a machine language, when the mainframe in an RPG-mainframe - or interpreted by an rpg-interpreter when the mainframe is not an rpg-mainframe.

So, Ray, are you suggesting that a RPG-Compiler does not compile the RPG code into straight machine code??

If so, one wonders what the benefit of programming in RPG is!!
