form like foxbase

Hi,

I understand that "fox base" means the successful the "dbaseiii clone"
launched by fox software in the olds days. I used it extensively in the
past.

If this is what you are looking for, you could use python + a GUI toolset to
build
your app. I have not done it. But i do not feel python would be the easiest
tool.

But neither python nor python-GUI modules are data-aware as dbase clones
were.
Nor do you get automatic updatabae db-grid a native report writer.

That may mean quite a bit of work.

I have no practical experience of data-intensive client-server apps running
python and a high-end graphical interface.

I would welcome any report on that.

Just my 2 cents

François
