HMG Print Samples

( HMG Print ( Mini Print ) for beginners in 10 easy steps )

Printing is one of jobs most causing headaches in xBase programming.

For programmers coming from oldy - goldy DOS days printing may be bigger trouble.

DOS experiences may be an impediment instead of easiness. Because many programmers don't want
quite their old habits and think that with a little work ( or by a magic wand ) they would convert
( or without any conversion ) their DOS print routines may work in the Windows or any other GUI medium.

One cause of this problem is probably seeing GUI printing methods so much complex and difficult.

Main goal of this "HMG Print Samples" work is demonstrate how many easy using HMG (Mini) Print.

Thanks friends :)

A little addendum : this programs ( especially last ones ) could have a shorter.

Since main goal is understand-ability for beginners, no made any decreasing in program size.

Happy HMG'ing :D

Esgici,


Understand-ability is very important and most of the time easy to maintain.

When I was younger (so much younger than today) I was working at places to maintain programs that were written in short-coded hard-to-read and hard-to-maintain ways. Furthermore these programs were maintained by dozens of programmers before me. Each with their own style...

Thanks!

Serge
