It is pure C++.  Very clear and useable. The InTranL1 class, the Chain( ) and 
RcdFound( ) mbr functions could be easily generated from the external database 
file defn of INTRANL1. No pgmr coding needed. All that is needed is the CPW 
that other platforms have.

Excuse me because I am trying to learn something here.  Where did you see 
"interactive" in my question ?   On a 1000 CPW 270, how many concurrent users 
can be supported ?

I try to be brief and count on the good intensions of the responder.  The 
original stmt is logically extended as: "The slow cpu also prevents our system 
from being a competitive file server and odbc/ado server"
