PEG Topical Forums

The PEG topical Forums are devoted to discussions on a single (possibly quite broad) topic. It is considered rude to interrupt topical discussions with off topic messages. On the other hand, if your message fits into the topic, you'll likely get a faster and more accurate response posting to the appropriate topical forum.

Fun

mailto:fun@peg.com

Note that some of the posters don't seem to understand the difference between raunchy and funny. If you're offended easily, don't subscribe. In fact, if you get offended at all, stay away. You've been warned.

Note also that some of these posters have way too much free time.

ABHack Forum

mailto:abhack@peg.com

According to the author:

I just released the best ever hack made in 4GL/ABL. It is available on PSDN under "Code Share", at http://www.psdn.com/library/kbcategory.jspa?categoryID=41 Document link: "http://www.psdn.com/library/entry.jspa?externalID=1886&categoryID=41

This guy can spy the activity in a source-code procedure editor to pop up auto-completion lists, for local or global variables, attributes/methods, buffers, temp-table, table and their fields names.

ABHack is a kind of demon 4GL procedure to run with the PERSISTENT option in a development session. Its strongest points are:

  1. It does not require any recompilation of the Application Development Environment (AppBuilder, Procedure Editor...). One just need to launch it, ideal for a consultant on site.
  2. It is made in pure 4GL (very few simple win32 API's, and a few PSTimers)
  3. Source code is given
  4. No need to pre-tag a database schema. Everything is found on the fly
