Your question is not very specific.

But the target of XSharp in my terms:
* To make it possible to use the dbase language syntax in the .NET environment
* open the .NET environment for more developers
* easier migration of existing source code (in a dbase dialect) to the .NET environment.

The scattered communities for the dbase dialects can be united under this endeavour.

Hello,

let me add something to what Otto wrote:

X# has some features that make it interesting also for non Xbase programmers:
  • X# has a powerful preprocessor. You can add functions or commands to the language, for example to build automatically viewmodel properties with NotifyPropertyChanged support - a one liner
  • X# has a runtime library with some very useful functions
  • X# comes with a built in macro-compiler
  • there is support for late binding - very flexible for data driven programming
  • the development team gives a fantastic support and is open to feature requests
  • there are plans to build a user driven class and function library that will be delivered with the product itself
  • the compiler and the runtime libraries are open source, if you subscribe to the FoX program (that includes also priority support)

Wolfgang
