Micro Focus FORMS

Micro Focus FORMS

Micro Focus FORMS

Micro Focus used to have a screen painter called "FORMS". Is there any way to obtain this?

RE: Micro Focus FORMS

Actually, I have two copies of this old version of Micro Focus COBOL. One on a floppy disk, the other on a ZIP disk. Unfortunately, I no longer have a device to read either.

RE: Micro Focus FORMS

Could you remember which compiler version is that?
I had an old Microfocus Personal COBOL for Windows. It was Object oriented and had an IDE called Animator.
Isn't it this what you need?

RE: Micro Focus FORMS

Well, no. The version I am currently using is older than that, it is Version 3.2.46, which is quite a bit later than the version with FORMS.

RE: Micro Focus FORMS

I have a version that came with a book. It does not do stand-alone progams - hey have to be run using something called PCOBRUN. The version is V2.0.02 January 1993. Any good? Although I am not sure about the legality of it (my version is legal - it is the passing on of a copy that is possibly illegal without consent from MF).


RE: Micro Focus FORMS

Well maybe. Perhaps MF doesn't care with this old unsuported software. Especialy as I do have a licened copy, just no longet accessable to me.
