   SQR User's Group
The SQR User's Group is an excellent site designed to facilitate the open exchange of ideas amongst SQR Users. Membership is free. Questions and solutions may be posted through a mailing list to the online bulletin board. A search feature may be used to find information in the current or archived list. This is a great site and the developers should be highly commended!


   SQR Utilities
SQR Analyzer

Use this utility to analyze SQR source code. Several functions are performed which include the creation of one stand-alone source file with nested includes expanded, a report listing each procedure and called sub-routine, and finally an indented process flowchart of the SQR execution path.

pg008.jpg (50690 bytes) You may be wondering what some of these illustrations have to do with SQR. Creating a web-site can be pretty boring. This makes it a little more interesting for me. I drew this with my trusty crayola crayons on the flight back from our honeymoon. At least there's sentimental value attached!
Application Engine Analyzer

This useful utility is similar to SQR Analyzer. The user is prompted for the A/E program and the analysis begins. First a listing of the Cache record is produced, then each step is printed with all of its' attributes. An indented process flowchart is then generated illustrating the execution path of the process.

   Custom SQR Function Library - "NEW Feature"
pntigerHs.jpg (7680 bytes) I created a custom function library (TDFUNC.SQC) that contains various routines for string handling, data manipulation, comparison and more... Visit often as this library will be updated periodically... Suggestions for new functions are encouraged... Click on the tiger head to check it out!

   SQR Tree by Wayne Ivory
tree01.jpg (37810 bytes) One of the SQR User Group members, Wayne Ivory, has created a GUI Windows-Based version similar to my SQR Analyzer. It is written in Visual Basic and is very nicely done. Click on my 'Tree' creation to the left for more information including some previews and where to register.
   "Zoo Animals" Collection
Zalligator.jpg (24179 bytes) Scattered about on this site you'll also find samples of my original "Zoo Animals" collection... part of a 100 page sketchbook I'm creating for my daughter... this is definitely a long term project! Already completed: Alligators, Lions, Grizzlies, Pandas, Flamingos, Koalas, Tigers, Rhinos, Elephants, Giraffes, Anteaters, Hippos, Sloths, Monkeys, Moose, Polar Bear, etc... there's even a Platypus!
