name to save this page under.[edit]

Looking for opinions... when I decided to start this page last night, I could not think of a name to save this page under. FoxPro and Foxpro were redirects to Visual FoxPro. I changed FoxPro to a disambig page and Foxpro to redirect to FoxPro. That done, the best article title I could think of was FoxPro 2 (for the 2.x tree that ended with 2.6). Any suggestions? --Bill W. Smith, Jr. 11:47, 13 October 2006 (UTC)

I know this article needs alot of work, including a code example or 2. I do all my work in FPU 2.6, and don't even have a copy of FPW anymore. If any are still using FPW26, it would be nice if they lent a hand. Bill W. Smith, Jr. 13:34, 13 October 2006 (UTC)

A section discussing the popularity of FoxPro, the environment where it grew to prominence and the reasons for its success would be enlightening. --Bsmith94 20:17, 21 March 2007 (UTC)

FoxPro on Solaris?[edit]

Did FoxPro 2.6 run on Solaris or SunOS?

Not to the best of my knowledge. BUT... if ibcs2 will run on Solaris then it SHOULD be possible. --Bill W. Smith, Jr. (talk/contribs) 21:16, 27 March 2007 (UTC)

RDBMS?[edit]

"Relational" has nothing to do with "relations between tables"! It is a term in relational algebra, which is a basic for all RDBMS resesarch. "Relation" or "tuple" stands for what is usually called a row.

Was about to comment the same thing. The line "Although FoxPro is a Database Management System (DBMS) and it does support relationships between tables, it is not considered a Relational Database Management System (RDBMS), lacking transactional processing." needs to be changed, though I don't really know what to.

Intro rewrite[edit]

I have added the Intro rewrite template. The opening sentence fails to make the topic clear to a casual reader.WideArc (talk) 21:07, 27 September 2010 (UTC)

some mistakes[edit]

Operating system compatibility table is invalid. Foxpro 2.6 compatible with Vista 32 bit and Windows 7 32 bit too..

Also why this page named as foxpro 2? I think so it's name should be Foxpro.
