Infoflex has announced Linux ports of its database products ESQLFLEX, INFOFLEX, and ACCOUNTFLEX.
ESQLFLEX is a low-cost clone of the Informix-ESQL/C product. It allows software developers to build, modify, and query databases using standard SQL calls from a C program, and allows developers to completely replace Informix-ESQL/C without modifying the application. ESQLFLEX is available for $695.
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.
Infoflex Incorporated can be reached at (415)697-6045 or at 840 Hinckley Road, Suite 107, Burlingame, CA 94010.
Quadralay Corporation has announced the release of the Linux version of its development environment UDT for C/C++, a software tool that greatly simplifies the design, implementation, maintenance, and management of C and C++ source code and documentation.
“We believe that Linux will bring the Unix operating system into the mainstream,” said Jeffrey Stockett, Quadralay's Chief Technical Officer. “For the first time, an individual can run a complete Unix implementation in his or her own home... ...Linux is fast, reliable, and best of all, free. Therefore, we are offering UDT for C/C++ on Linux at a special price, one which will make it available to anyone who wants it.”
UDT for C/C++ consists of five components:
A drag-and-drop tool manager that allows developers to integrate existing tools into the UDT environment easily
A powerful C++ class browser with a rapid prototyping capability
A fully-integrated object-oriented editor
A complete C source code browser
A hypermedia-based source code librarian and authoring system (for $50 additional)
UDT for C/C++ is available for $99 without the hypermedia GWHIS Viewer, and $149 with GWHIS Viewer.

Practical Task Scheduling Deployment
July 20, 2016 12:00 pm CDT
One of the best things about the UNIX environment (aside from being stable and efficient) is the vast array of software tools available to help you do your job. Traditionally, a UNIX tool does only one thing, but does that one thing very well. For example, grep is very easy to use and can search vast amounts of data quickly. The find tool can find a particular file or files based on all kinds of criteria. It's pretty easy to string these tools together to build even more powerful tools, such as a tool that finds all of the .log files in the /home directory and searches each one for a particular entry. This erector-set mentality allows UNIX system administrators to seem to always have the right tool for the job.
Cron traditionally has been considered another such a tool for job scheduling, but is it enough? This webinar considers that very question. The first part builds on a previous Geek Guide, Beyond Cron, and briefly describes how to know when it might be time to consider upgrading your job scheduling infrastructure. The second part presents an actual planning and implementation framework.

With all the industry talk about the benefits of Linux on Power and all the performance advantages offered by its open architecture, you may be considering a move in that direction. If you are thinking about analytics, big data and cloud computing, you would be right to evaluate Power. The idea of using commodity x86 hardware and replacing it every three years is an outdated cost model. It doesn’t consider the total cost of ownership, and it doesn’t consider the advantage of real processing power, high-availability and multithreading like a demon.
This ebook takes a look at some of the practical applications of the Linux on Power platform and ways you might bring all the performance power of this open architecture to bear for your organization. There are no smoke and mirrors here—just hard, cold, empirical evidence provided by independent sources. I also consider some innovative ways Linux on Power will be used in the future.Get the Guide
