"Big Blue will soon release a new toolkit that will give you new ways to write and port code for the iSeries. ISeries Tools for Developers will be available in the first quarter, so you won't have long to wait."

"The toolkit contains 43 tools that can be called from various OS/400 programming environments, including command line, Qshell, and the Portable Application Solutions Environment (PASE). Many of the tools are based in Unix or X-windows, making PASE and a client-based Xserver prerequisites. (Linux and AIX clients include an Xserver; Windows clients will need a product that emulates an Xserver, such as Hummingbird Exceed or a freeware alternative such as VNCviewer.)"

"A key feature of the iSeries Tools for Developers toolkit is the Ez editor function (also called the Andrew Toolkit Editor, named after Andrew Carnegie and Andrew Mellon, since IBM developed it in collaboration with Carnegie Mellon University). Ez editor lets developers edit code in a big, scrollable window instead of in the smaller, 24-line green screens."
