Over 160+ Successful Projects and Still Counting

IBM AS400 AS/400

PGMRAID AS400 (1990-1996)

Born on the System/38, this was a collection of QUSRTOOL-like utilities. With the launch of the IBM AS/400 the toolkit quickly evolved to fill holes in the software development life cycle. File editing utilities, debugging tools and source code tidy-up routines


PROJEX400 iSERIES (1997-2008)

Now running exclusively on the IBM AS400 and iSeries, the first major revamp saw a rewrite of the majority of RPG code to RPG400 and a slew of new cool tools for the AS400 and iSeries. This was available as shareware for over ten years and hundreds of downloads

I've been using PROJEX4I since the AS400 days, back when it was called PGMRAID400. I coudn't work without the File Editor and DSPFLD/DSPKEY tools. The JBA *LDA thing is better than the JBA one!

Learning the IBM i OS from manuals, while using some of the tools in the Projex4i really simplified the ideas of files/logicals/libraries and their SQL variants for me. The WRKTRG tool is excellent!

Free modernization tools, simple to use and regular fixpacks. I've asked for many changes over the last year, adding functions and always had them delivered in the next release. A+
