Conetic Software Systems 4GL and Accounting Software Support FreeBSD 2.0.5
San Antonio, Texas -- September 7, 1995 -- Conetic Software Systems, Inc.,
a developer of database development tools and accounting software for Unix-,
DOS-,and Windows-based computers, has announced support for FreeBSD Operating
System. The Conetic product line consists of C/BASE, a 4GL application
development system, and C/BOOKS, a set of nine integrated accounting modules
that range from general ledger to job costing.
According to Andres Garza, Chief Executive Officer of Conetic Software, the
Conetic product line offers FreeBSD users the ability to transcend computer
hardware and operating system boundaries.
"Given the wild fluctuation of the computer industry, it's comforting to know
that system managers can maintain software investments across a wide variety
of platforms. We can do this by maintaining compatible data structure
alignment across all C/BASE 4GL Version 3.8 platforms. This allows applications
and data to be moved/copied to any other support platform --and run without
recoding or time consuming data conversions."
"So if one of our users has an application created under MS-DOS, he could
easily move it to FreeBSD or any other support platform. " Garza said.
"Imagine: Just copy your application which you created in a Unix
character-based terminal to a PC running MS-Windows and see it run in
The powerful authoring tool C/BASE 4GL has been the foundation for all of the
Conetic products since 1979. Today this tool and database engine has thousands
of installations around the world. The software centers on a visually driven
menu interface for the novice users and a feature packed script language for
the expert users. Unlike other 4GL's, C/BASE 4GL offers an extremely low
learning curve for new users.
C/BOOKS includes nine integrated accounting modules that include general ledger,
accounts receivable, accounts payable, fixed assets, payroll, order entry,
inventory, purchase orders and job costing. All of the modules can be
customized to accommodate changing financial requirements and regulations.
In addition, new applications can be interfaced directly into any of these
existing accounting modules. C/BOOKS modules include "C/BASE 4GL source
code", allowing users to enhance data-file structure, data entry screens,
reports and menus.
One of the many unique features C/BOOKS offers is "real-time posting" --
on-line instant updates. With C/BOOKS there is no need for time-consuming
batch postings. "This is an exceptional feature when you consider the cost of
user downtime due to batch postings," Garza said. "C/BOOKS offers todays
multi-user organizations, the real-time performance they desire."
Strong Unix integration has long been recognized as an outstanding asset by
Conetic users. Today's INTERNET user will quickly come to appreciate this
powerful, fundamental building block. C/BASE 4GL standard distribution
comes ready to run as a World-Wide-Web database server. C/BASE 4GL commands
can be used inside a CGI "perl" or "shell" script command for data extraction,
input and update. In addition, C/BASE 4GL reports can also be used to create
dynamic HTML forms with virtual hypertext links. Be sure to look for
Conetic's World-Wide-Web database server at "http://www.conetic.com".
Conetic's flexible licensing policy for C/BASE and C/BOOKS allow customers to
pay only for what they use. All Conetic standard modules are licensed by the
total number of concurrent users, regardless of computer hardware platforms.
"Most software vendors license their modules by hardware platform class,"
Garza said. "This is truly an archaic method for licensing software. In
June of 1990 Conetic Software adopted a new "concurrent number of user"
pricing policy. This new pricing policy can be best compared to purchasing
gasoline for your car. Where the car is equivalent to your hardware platform
and one gallon of gasoline is equivalent to one concurrent user. When
purchasing 10 gallons of gasoline for a Mercedes or for Hyundai do you pay a
different price? Should you pay a different price? No, 10 gallons of
gasoline is the same price regardless how much you paid for your car. A 4
concurrent user license is the same price for a $3,000 or $100,000 hardware
For a limited time Conetic Software is offering a evaluation DEMO DEVELOPMENT
KIT for FreeBSD 2.0.5. This evaluation set includes C/BASE 4GL development
[2 concurrent users], C/BASE Utilities API [advance development for C
