I have some friends who run a software/services cooperative business providing
ERP and back end inventory and invoicing functionality to large businesses (a
million items in stock). They use PROIV http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PROIV as
their programming tool for ERP management.
I'm an open source guy and the idea of learning PROIV seems daunting. It may be
a powerful language in the ERP realm, but it's closed source and seems to have
a very small community.
I'm interested in PicoLisp (and suspect it may be the Holy Grail), but it
doesn't look easy. I don't expect a powerful language to be easy to learn,
quite the opposite.
Does anyone have any experience with PROIV? I think my friends should learn
PicoLisp and use that instead! I think they realize their future with PROIV is
Can anyone point me to a good argument for PicoLisp as a PROIV alternative?
