We have a new employee who is most likely leading one of our clients in the X# era. However, his knowledge of xBase is 0,0 and we found that despite the well maintained documentation of X#, xBase commands like dbServer, skip etc are not documented. Paul Piko's Vulcan at Warpspeed doesn't either.
Does anyone have a suggestion (some documentation) which will help him gain knowledge about creating X#/Vulcan programs using dbserver & command? I remember I used the South Sea Adventures for learning VO - something like that?
One strange thing: he installed X# and this is how the PDF looks like. Also after a re-install. It looks fine on my Pc. Does this make sense to anyone?
Thanks for your suggestion; I know Alwyn from Devshare and have his address but didn't know this book. I found the book you mention on www.govulcan.net/portal/LearningVulcanNE...bid/125/Default.aspx
but of course half the links there don't work anymore. I'll check out which of the sources there would be best to help him understand DBF use. There's also Paul's Warp speed book, but not much about DBF there; a book from Dieter and clickstartvulcan.net notes from Phil.
possibly the most complete would be the Vo2.5 manual - i still have these 15cm thick papers - lot's of good writing.
The problem with Alwyns book is, that it handles dbf as whole rather cursory, that will not suffice/help someone foreign to the mindset of xbase/dbf...
