Visual fox pro


My job uses visual foxpro and sql 7. I decided to learn both of these because I wanted to help my dept out.. ( limit of programmers which means no time for us). Any suggestions for someone who has never programmed before? Any websites that can help me out?

Thanks..
LN

Good luck, FoxPro is not exactly in high demand
over-all (anymore), and I doubt that many people
here would be using it. Your safest bet would be to
look at M$ homepage for their trainings. I tried to
find info on that in the past (was looking for info to
see how hard it would be to port a project from
VFP to e.g. PostgreSQL) and gave up on it pretty
quicly, the only potentially helpful online links
were to expertexchange which is also a pay-service.


Cheers,
Tink

Why is this question in the linux forum at all? Both VFP and SQL 7 work only on MS operating systems, right?

That's all good mate, this is a generic programming
forum ... even MS products are permitted ;)

Not sure about your browser but mine lists programming under NON-*nix so I'd assume you are not limited to unix only programming.

I thought foxpro died a while back though?

As to a valid answer, #2 has it I think that and some googling is all I can think of, or if your local library is as bad as mine check there. Most of thier up to date computer books are things I donated after realizing they are 5 years old and fairly invalid now. Though I never had any foxpro books to donate.

Also interlibrary loans might be a way to find something.

Oops. Sorry for my previous post. That (my previous post) was inappropriate.

Frighteningly enough, you can run FoxPro For SCO under Linux.

M$ Visual Fox Pro In Mandrake

What do you use to run VFP in Mandrake? I understand WINE, are there any tutorials on this?
