Release Notes

A new and improved version of the source code control to text program included with Visual Foxpro.

Why to use: Consistent and case insensitive sorting of methods, objects, and properties, resulting in much less comparison errors when doing a Diff. Bugfixes and speed improvements, several language localisations.
How to use: Just copy this prg into your HOME() folder and change the entry "Text Generation" under SysMenu/Tools/Options/Projects to point to that new file.

We decided to change the name from the old PL_SCCTEXT to SccTextX, so that it follows the standard FoxPro naming conventions ;) for enhanced versions. (In case you wonder where that PL stems from: It was our internal version here at my company ProLib).

This version is already the result of several helpful community members who over the years helped to enhance that first Microsoft release to the current level:
  • Mark Wilden
  • Markus Winhard
  • Frank Camp
  • Beth Massi
  • Francis Faure
  • Fernando D. Bozzo

There are several improvements coming:

  • Incorporate more languages (German, Spanish, French and English are already included)
  • Clean up the code to use modern builtin functions instead longwinded helper procedures
  • therefor VFP9.x only supported
  • Cleaner and faster GUI

So, if you have other language translations ready, or have some more ideas for this routine, please send them to juergen(at) !
