Well, the product that most people seem to know as "Robot" is probably
what Help/Systems (the company who sells it) calls Robot/SCHEDULE.
Either that, or folks are referring to the whole Robot product line,
which definitely focuses on automation.

The closest thing to a database viewer/editor in that product line is
called EASY VIEW. It's the only product listed under the Robot
umbrella that isn't named Robot/SOMETHING.

(Do we have IBM to thank for the whole slash naming convention? Or
was it a more widespread fad back in the day?)
