Until recently, RPG has neglected the sophistication of elegant array processing while PHP has supported the use of arrays since its inception. This session examines why array processing is so important and how many of the over 70 array function relate to RPG operation codes and built-in functions. Participants will see how arrays are used to pass parameters between functions and programs, as well as how arrays can be used to supplant nearly all of the purposes data structures serve in RPG. This intermediate level session is important for the RPG programmer exploring PHP for production purposes.
