If VARPG programs can be packaged as Java code, right now-----I had better
take another look at the new version---Would I be correct in assuming I
could create  a standalone windows
project and compile straight in Java.
The IDE in VARPG was very close to Visual Basic so it should not be hard
for a VBer to use
VARPG.
