It sounds like we have a lot to look forward to. I have a fondness for
databases, and full screen text based data entry apps, so INFORMATION and
the forms management system sound particularly interesting to me.
I've read through a bit of the FORMS users guide. I only found FORMS
installed on the Rev 19 sample system so far, but haven't checked all the
systems yet. I haven't tried to do anything with FORMS aside from listing
existing forms. There weren't any.
The only info I could find on INFORMATION was its product bulletin. Was it
The Prisoner's title sequence where a voice kept repeating INFORMATION ...
INFORMATION? For some reason that came to mind. I need to get around to
watching that series. I've only seen a bit of the first episode.
