Re: Efficacy of code generators



fixed

Nathan,

You asked:

>> That sounds a little odd, coming from the author of WRKDBF.  If you're
sold
>> on the code generation approach, why did you build a utility, instead?

Two comments:
   Believe it or not, another manager (while I was on vacation) assigned a
   programmer to make a code generated file maintenance program for each
   physical file we had - that is, if I had 500 PF's, the programmer was
   assigned to code generate 500 maintance programs.  While certainly more
   effective than writing 500 RPG programs to do the same thing, the
   assignment is still silly.  Thus I started writing WRKDBF to solve this
   assignment once for all files.
   and secondly, believe it or not, in it's inital iterations, WRKDBF was
   generated with Synon!  See all the consistent and user-friendly easy to
   use panels? <g>
