Yes, Easy View is the database product at Help Systems. It's been in the
catalog for at least 25 years now.
Decent utility - one of the surviving non-operations-related products
from those days - Print Coder was bought by Gumbo, I think - much easier
to use than RLU - much closer to SDA in interface. And it could convert
internal report specs to external.
Names - used to be Robot and Auto Tune and others - then various
products were developed that lined up as operations automation - so we
got Robot/ALERT, Robit/CPA, etc. Now Auto Tune is within the
Robot/AUTOTUNE name. Product branding, I suppose.

Well, the product that most people seem to know as "Robot" is probably
Another is a database file editor. And so on...
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?)
