HMG
xBase Development System For Windows


(c) 2002-2010 Roberto Lopez

Welcome, my name is Roberto Lopez.  

When Windows turned into the standard operating system for PC, I've got disappointed with the new programming languages developed for it.

In my opinion, in most cases, these new languages constituted a step back in computer science evolution, because, the code become bigger, less intuitive and more complex that in previous generation.

Original xBase was powerful, simple and intuitive. It's Windows incarnations and new mainstream Windows tools, loosed this features, turning the things more and more harder.

In 2000 I've discovered the Harbour project, a fully new, free multi-platform Clipper based compiler.

Some time later, I've began experimenting with Harbour-C interface and MinGW compiler. I've finally realized that my old "dream" could be possible. Create a free Windows tool with the original xBase spirit (powerful, intuitive and easy to use).

HMG is aimed to be "natural". The basic idea behind it, is let to the programmer to express its ideas in a straight way, using a simple code, easy to write and easy to maintain, turning its work more productive

HMG license is GPL+"Harbour Exception", so your use of that executable is in no way restricted on account of linking the library code into it.
