I have hesitated to respond because this could so easily turn into a
RPG, Report Program Generator, is a code generator. Its how I make my
living. Can it be a surprise I like it? As I look at other choices
and realize how much RPG does for me, and how well it protects me from
myself, I have be appreciative. Does this mean I believe David's
attitude is misguided? Not at all. He's a fargin' coding genius! He
doesn't need to be protected from himself. :)
I've used, and liked, Pro-Gen. That was a code generator. It required
an attitude of going along to get along. Tweaking generated code was
possible, even easy and well documented. However I never found an
instance where Pro-Gen wouldn't do what I wanted done. Tweaking it was
a waste of client money.
I used, and liked, VARPG which is a drag & drop application builder and
I never saw any benefit to knowing how to create/edit .dll files.
I learned how to write HTML pages with Notepad, but the move to Net
Objects Fusion was a big leap forward in my productivity and
GWT is still not totally baked, but it does allow me to produce usable
stuff, and is web-based,, which is where I want to go, anyway.
