Hi, I'm new to Pro IV and was wondering if anybody had any books or hints they could recommend to a Pro IV novice. My previous programming experinces have been in Java , C and Clipper - all of which have a very different methodology to Pro IV.

Until then I'll just keep plugging away at the documention and hope I don't break the Dev server ;)

(And if anybody knows how i can move this post to some more releveant that would be good too :-" )

Hi

there are some earlier posts on similar subject - use the Search on the forum

also take a look at this posting, understanding the timing cycle is pretty important in the development of pro-iv functions

We are using Native 5.232* (*I can't tell you exactly until my unix login is organised) running on Solaris.

While the previous Thread had some helpful stuff, I was hoping to generate some more responses, after all its has been almost two years since that thread was active ;)

There is a tutorial that comes with the Single Developer vesion of PROIV. I understand that in the next version of PROIV (version 6.0) it will be expanded. There is also some basic guidance in the VIP help file.

Things should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler
