Ibm Rpg Ii

IBM RPG II, the IBM Report Program Generator II, is an early business-oriented programming language. Developed by IBM in the 1950s for working with large volumes of data typical in commercial applications, RPG has evolved through several versions, including RPG II. The language was extended to support more complex file operations and calculations. Today, modern iterations like free-format RPG IV continue to be used on IBM midrange servers such as System i (AS/400).
