4D Programming Tool Updated

Deep Sky Technologies has updated their 4D programming tool, BASh, to version 1.5.6. Those programming in the 4th Dimension environment can use BASh to help simplify a number of common tasks. BASh helps users save time while adding improved functionality to 4D components. According to Deep Sky Technologies:

Deep Sky Technologies today announced the release of BASh v1.5.6 for Macintosh and Windows. BASh is a 4th Dimension component which provides extensive utility functionality for 4D programmers, including a dynamic stack space module for reusing variable space, encoding and cryptography routines, and much, much more.

BASh is the first 4D component publicly available after the release of 4D v6.7.0 by 4D, Inc., and 4D SA. And, in keeping with the tradition of offering high quality and services, Deep Sky Technologies, Inc., has made the BASh component available for free to the developer community.

"This latest release of the BASh component is important for DSTi", said Steven G. Willis, President, Deep Sky Technologies, Inc. "Version 1.5.6 includes the final core routines and bug fixes needed for our next software offerings. It is exciting to be at a point to be able to begin offering high quality code solutions to 4D developers around the world."

BASh v1.5.6 contains important bug fixes and one new method. All total, the BASh component now consists of 223 methods across 22 modules of code. As well, this is the first release of the BASh component that includes the documentation module, z_Library, as a separate 4D Insider library.

BASh is available as "peepware." You can find more information on the product, and what exactly "peepware" means, at the Deep Sky Technologies Web site.
