Profound Logic Announces a CL to Web Conversion Tool

Dayton, OH July 31, 2006 - Profound Logic Software announces the addition of a CL to Web conversion tool to its RPGsp software. Most legacy i5 applications are a combination of RPG and CL programs. While RPG programs perform the bulk of screen-processing, many screens are also presented to end-users via CL programs. These screens tend to be simple prompts and menus, as CL is a very simplistic language.

RPGsp’s Green-Screen to Web Conversion Tool, which converts RPG programs to multi-purpose CGI applications, can now be used to convert CL programs as well. Any interactive CL program can be converted to a Web application with the click of a button. The CL program will maintain its functionality, and will have the ability to function as either an interactive green-screen CL program or a Web program, from one compiled object.

The RPGsp environment offers an array of tools including snippets, an HTML designer, and a split-view editor to enhance the converted application beyond its original capabilities. A typical enhancement for a CL menu might be to make the options clickable. A CL date range prompter program can be enhanced to have pop-up calendars when executed in a browser environment.
