Why GREENBAR when you can EXCEL? 
Cardinal captures reports from UNIX, Mainframe, Midrange and other 
legacy systems. Reports can be automatically modified, imported into

Review: Improving the Windows Experience with Cygwin, Version 1.3.20
Review by Marcel Gagné
Long-time Unix and Linux users realize that sometimes nothing 
beats the power of the shell, not to mention the bevy of tools 
that the *nix environment provides. This is where Cygwin shows its 
power. Cygwin is actually a collection of GNU tools ported to 
Windows, which is done through the use of a Cygwin runtime library. 
Using Cygwin, a developer can use Cygwin's runtime (or the Win32 API), 
the gcc compiler, and accompanying debugging tools, to port Unix 
and Linux software to Windows. 

Book Review: Mastering Perl/Tk
by Cameron Laird
Information Technology is a fashion industry in that the technical 
merit determines no more of a product or idea's popularity than do 
historical accidents and marketing. Perl/Tk is one of the neglected 
technologies that deserves wider recognition. It fits the needs and 
background of many programmers who simply don't understand its 
availability. Mastering Perl/Tk is helping correct that neglect.
