In more than 20 years, he has never written DO before, and less ENDDO to close. Only WHILE / END. And works. :mrgreen: I don`t knew that!!!! Meaning that I've spent thousands of keystrokes the last 30 years :) Of course... I'm sure that you know, that you could use just 'end' instead 'enddo', 'endi...

Re: The last novice

Today harbour should be generating WEBASSEMBLY along with C in order to get rid of that ugly javascript on the browser side. Many years ago, I published here my first draft of what HMGSCRIPT should be. Part of the project I've imagined, involved a 'xBase to JavaScript translator'. This translator, ...

I also don't believe in accessing your data from all over the world through a web-browser which WILL be hacked, sooner or later.
