Wine is a way to run Windows software on Linux, but with no Windows required. Wine is an open-source Windows compatibility layer that can run Windows programs directly on any Linux desktop. Essentially, Wine is trying to re-implement enough of Windows from scratch so that it can run all those Windows applications without actually needing Windows.
This IBM i (aka iSeries, AS400) command provides for code modernisation by converting fixed-format RPGLE source code into fully free-form RPGLE source in a non-destructive manner.

This started out as a 'quick and dirty' program for my own needs, but it got a little out of hand! :) It's not an example of my best work, as it has grown organically over time, so hopefully you'll forgive some of my coding faux-pas.
>>> If you find something that won't convert, or doesn't convert properly, please let me know, and I'll fix it for you and the benefit of everyone else.
- Non-destructive conversion: The utility converts the source from one member to a new member (the original source is left untouched), converting, where possible, fixed-format code to free-form code.
- Clearer, cleaner code: Free-form code (both new and existing) is indented to show nesting, and all opcodes are converted to a standard case format for consistency. Comments are tidied up and can be indented to follow the code indentation, making the code much easier on the eye.
- Definition consolidation: All in-line field definitions are moved to 'D' specs. Duplicate definitions (which do not generate compiler errors when defined in fixed-format) are dropped to avoid confusion.
- Consistent free-form definitions: File, constant and variable declarations are converted to their free-form equivalents (see caveats in documentation).
- CMS-friendly: Converted lines retain their original change date and line markers in order to avoid flagging changes in CMSes that use such features to track changes.
- Audit Report: An audit report is produced listing every source member processed by the utility, detailing the number of lines, the number of lines converted and a conversion ratio.
- Mass conversion: The utility can be run for all members of a source file, enabling the mass conversion of legacy code to the latest free-form version.
This is an application that can also be fetched from https://sourceforge.net/projects/cvtrpgfree/. It has been hosted in OnWorks in order to be run online in an easiest way from one of our free Operative Systems.
