Abstract:

"Advanced dBASE IV Programming provides comprehensive coverage of those skills necessary to program effectively in dBASE IV. It applies consistent database theory to practical business situations, stressing structured analysis and programming principals throughout." "Here are some highlights: uses a building-block approach, combined with a comprehensive case scenario, to tie design concepts to a realistic business application. Provides exposure to additional major programming projects (not just small program segments) so as to develop true mastery of the material; utilizes a realistic business problem-solving approach, with special emphasis on meeting system-user requirements; includes coverage of multiple file processing; provides a detailed overview of user-defined functions (UDFs), complete with examples and exercises, so as to build confidence in using this powerful programming feature; and provides advanced coverage of the on-line debugger and error trapping techniques."--Jacket.
