Now, now. Having a Windoze version of Forms would be a very nice
thing to have, IMHO. That way, a developer wouldn't have to choose
between UNIX and X, or Windoze. S/he can do both!

And not only Windoze, but Mac, Presentation Manager on OS/2, etc.,
etc.. Perhaps just a port of the API to another windowing environment
would be enough. I don't have enough knowledge of either the Forms API or
the Win32 API to do it myself. Perhaps someone else on the list?
