in thread Cross platform perl development

Hi pmas,
I did get your point about "use Access if you have it already". My point was just that unfortunatly we can't rely on our budget users allready having access.

I also totally agree with you about access being a very good choice for inexperienced users. However, being tied into a gui can be quite anoying at times.. just like a unix prompt is so much more powerfull than the windows explorer... if you know what you are doing that is =)

there was discussion about porting Perl to Palm PDA- can you believe that?

Yeps... I'm actually running Perl on my Psion 5mx... works very smoothly! =)

Kasper

    I fired up google.com and found: FREE StarOffice from Sun for Linux, and compatible with M$ Office: like Word, Excell, PowerPoint, and even ADO/ODBC database. I was impressed. No more reasons to buy M$ Office if you can handle Linux.

    HTH -- even if it is wildly OT? Or anything helping to smash Evil Empire is on topic? ;)

    To make errors is human. But to make million errors per second, you need a computer.
