And FWIW my new dev environment, on general release early next year, uses a
client side language modelled on UniVerse Basic but with component and event
oriented features...

Hideously contrived example follows -

* get the author id from a selection dialog
Author = This.AUTHOR.Text
If Author = "" Then
   STOP
End

* pointless validation to prove a point
Read AuthorRec From U2_AUTHORS, Author Else
   ShowMessage "Not a known author"
   STOP
End

* change the selection command property for a report
TCL = 'SSELECT U2_BOOKS'
TCL := ' WITH AUTHOR_ID = "': OConv(Author, "MCU"):'"'

BookList.Command = TCL

* run it ..
BookList.Run()

* how about saving the results?
BookList.SaveToFile("c:\temp\mybooks.txt")


(and so forth - you get the idea)

I did the same for an older - now defunct - Windows 4GL many years ago as a
way of helping UniVerse developers bridge the gap. Seemed like a good time
to resurrect it in my new toolkit.

Can Pick BASIC code simulate an object oriented environment?
