This is a book on modern programming practices as adapted to fourth generation languages. While it uses DBASE III+ and IV as an example, it is not a language manual but instructs readers in modern techniques of systems analysis and program design in the context of a fourth generation language. Covering the workings of business information systems, design of programs, and implementation, it uses an acronym-free format and, unlike existing books on program design, modifies the use of analysis and design methods to fit in a fourth generation, database-oriented environment. The techniques used have been proven in both personal computer and mainframe environments.
