VX/DECForms is an implementation of DEC's OpenVMS Forms Management System for Linux/UNIX. VX/DECForms provides identical form management on Linux and UNIX as the original DECForms on OpenVMS. VX/DECForms is a library of FORMS$ API's which take identical arguments compared to DECFor,s on OpenVMS.
VX/DECForms compiles the IFDL into a C++ logic subroutine which follows the flow of the IFDL, however, the IFDL verbs are turned into C++ classes that keep the same names and the same 'Attributes' as the IFDL.
The C++ Classes emit ANSI codes just like DECForms. DECForms is so complicated that we do not try to enhance its functionality, our goal is a 100% functional emulation. We have succeed when a user sits at a Sector7 DECForms migrated screen and cannot tell the difference.
