Designed for those new to RPG IV, this text provides 70 compiled PRG IV program listings with compiler specific details; line-by-line explanations of the syntax and processing logic of the compiled listings; and coverage of topics unique to the AS/400 environment, including physical files, logical files, subfiles, printer files, windowing, and control language programming.
