I used Informix 4GL but the DOS based version (back in '86, 19 not 18!!) and it was truely horrendous, it crashed for every reason imaginable and a few you could never dream of. Our payroll and expenses system was written in it.

I dabbled in COBOL but I found I was growing a beard and starting to wear Addidas Bethlahem so I stopped...went to desktop DBs after that (dBASE, FoxBase etc.)

Rachel,
Whats wrong with COBOL. I programmed with it in the early 70's and last I heard the "root" module I write is still in use today(payroll for a Fortune 100 company). Later in life I programmed in INFORMIX 4GL on a DataPoint server. It was replaced with an IBM 360 and they never got the application to run as fast as the original.

hm, watch your back at IOUGA next year Joe :)

I am up there amongst the more "seasoned" members of this list.

I even (sh, don't tell anyone) programmed in COBOL.
