Don't be shy Bob - I'll bet you've worked in several of those, as have we all.
A little Visual Basic, some Access and a love affair with Fox Pro. Then batch files and modem test scripts written for our test computers and HP's BT Basic (Board Test Basic).

I do have a great fondness for Fox Pro. Not sure why I like it better than Access.

The first language I learned early on was called MOMBasic. The syntax is easy to understand:

"IF you do not clean your room, AND by the time your father gets home, THEN he will beat you. DO it now, young man, OR ELSE.

I think Roger Waters was a coder: "IF you dont eat your meat, THEN you will not get your pudding."
