WebFOCUS 4.3.5? Seriously? That must have been released when the Romans were still in charge...

The good old days...

When :
Men were real men
Women were real Women
Small furry creatures from alpha centauri were real small furry creatures from alpha centauri

And

WebFOCUS was easily configured and customised.

Cool

Gosh! We are up to 7705 now - end even thinking about WF8*. But up until about 4 years ago it was PC FOCUS version 6 ... I still rely on those PC FOCUS manuals when I need a refresher on MODIFY or some user-written subroutine ...

Also just remembered this, original DN40021.0686 - 29 years old this month -



Has examples of how a UWS of MTHNAM could be written in FORTRAN, COBOL, PL/1 and Assembler and references Release 4.0.14.

Wonder what I'd be able to get for it on Ebay? Wink

While not 29 years old, I still have the Nov 1998 Systems Journal where Art and Noreen introduced the MacGyver technique. I still use it in the training of programmers new to the FOCUS language.

Downsizing here: I just pitched my copy of the FOCMAN manual, some printer layout charts, and a couple of 5081 cards.
