  • Modernize Source - Modernize a block of RPG source with the latest RPG IV syntax available for your OS/400 release (fixed or free-form).

  • Expressions - Insert and edit long expressions. Prompt and insert built-in-functions. Additionally compress expressions into the minimum lines required.

  • Examine Variables - View the length and type of any variable (field) in a RPG IV program without having to browse through the source.

  • Key Lists and Parameter lists - Show the fields that make up a list without having to browse through the source.

SEU PLUS also allows developers to add their own custom line commands for launching OS/400 commands within SEU and for inserting predefined source code (snippets).
