Infoflex announces Linux database support

Infoflex has announced Linux ports of its database products ESQLFLEX, INFOFLEX, and ACCOUNTFLEX.

  • INFOFLEX-4GL is similar in syntax to Informix and is 100% compatible with the Informix-SE database. INFOFLEX is easy to modify through its consistent WYSIWYG approach to programming menus, screens, and reports and through its many powerful built-in features designed to reduce coding. INFOFLEX is available for $995.

  • ACCOUNTFLEX includes modules for Sales, Purchasing, Inventory, Jobcost, Payroll, Accounts Receivable, Accounts Payable, and General Ledger. Each module costs $795 with source. Executable versions may be distributed for $150 per module under an OEM license.
