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.

PEG Community Forums
These forums cover subjects which are "OFF TOPIC" when viewed on any of our other forums, or which are special in some way. They are here to allow our readers a means to communicate with like minded brethern without activating the net berserkers.
From time to time, PEG sponsors local PUG forums; these forums are also considered community forums.
PEG Community Discussions almost always non-technical
Sometimes you've heard/seen/thought of the funniest thing and you just want to share it with a few hundred of your closest friends, but the net police are ready to pounce on anyone who even seems to stray even a teeny bit off topic. If you are a PEG reader of some ilk, you can post it here.
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.
Sometimes you just have to let loose, but you really don't want to break up the latest discussion on optimizing persistent procedure calls. This list is also known as firstname.lastname@example.org

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.
