Ik ken dit programma niet, maar snap ik het goed dat dit gewoon een soort Ms Acces is, maar dan sneller/makkelijker/simpeler ???
...waarmee je standalone database-programma's kunt maken. Ligt dus heel wat anders dan Access.
FoxPro is een programmeertaal om databaseapplicaties te maken. Dus zowel de databaselogica als de (frontend)applicatie.
Ik ga deze beta even downloaden. Eens kijken of er nog leuke features zijn bijgekomen.
Zombies gaan inderdaad echt nooit dood. ;)
