This version of Decode It! now supports the following Decode
It! 4GL commands:
. UNDEFINE command -- Now you can selectively undefine
the value associated with any label (except RECORDs) at
. (OMIT0) command -- Like (OMIT), this command allows
data to be consumed by a rule without it being printed.
However, this command WILL print non-zero data.
Foreign users are encouraged to register. Axiom Innovations
will answer foreign mail as soon as possible and will provide
technical support for users outside the United States.
This version of Decode It! is valid until December 31, 1995.
It will still run after this date, but the software will
display a message stating that it is outdated. This prevents
old, obsolete shareware versions from circulating. Therefore,
you are sure to get the best, most current version of Decode It!.
If you wish to have software without the message after 1995,
please send us your disk and sufficient postage to pay for a
two ounce package (stamps are OK). We'll return your disk
with the latest shareware version of the software on it.
The next major release of Decode It! will include the following
. A Decode It! 4GL debugger.
. A decoder editor.
. Embedded Decode It! 4GL for C header files. C header files
will also function as Decode It! rule files.
. Arrays (in addition to instantiation).
. Dynamic storage of records and arrays.
. Enhanced expression evaluation (with more operators).
. Bit fields, unsigned numbers, and EBCDIC support.
. Templates (typedefs).
. Many more file formats.
These features will emphasize simplicity, speed, and ease of
use. By registering, you will make this next release
possible. And, of course, registered users will receive
upgrade notices and special upgrade deals on future versions
of Decode It!.
We at Axiom Innovations hope you find Decode It! as useful as
we have. If you have any questions or comments, please
write to us. We would love to hear from you.
