What OS does a as400 use? Also I want to run RPG on one so I can learn the
language, is the software available or does IBM have it all locked up.

Thank!

Brian

os/400 is the operating system.  It is a proprietary IBM operating system
that blows everything else outta the water..

RPG is a licensed program..

If you are on an as/400, it is virtually guaranteed that the RPG editor and
compiler is on that system..

This isn't unix.(thank you jesus) .  you have to be on an as/400 to be
running the os/400 operating system.

AS/400 Uses OS/400 Operating system. The current version is 4.4.0. RPG is the
licensed program sold on the AS/400. Most AS/400s are purchased with RPG as
their primary language. I have 10 years experience with AS/400.
