Good Reference Book for Progress Development

I am attempting to help someone with a system that has been developed
using Progress.  I have been programming for 15 years but I have never
used Progress before.  Does anyone know of a good reference book that I
could buy and where I could find it?  I am desperate!

You can make a good start with the Language Tutorial, and Programming
Handbook, both published by Progress. Depending on the version of progress,
these may have been shipped with the product. They are both also in the
e-doc set. For a more advanced book, consider Making Good Progress, by John
Campbell, and published by White Star Software (www.wss.com). For
performance and tuning See the several books published by Dan Forman.
(Can't find a web address).

Programmers, with their inbuilt sense of order and discipline, should
really be running the world.

"Making Good Progress" by John Campbell comes to mind.  It is an
excellent overview of the development process, even if you're not using
Progress.  However, it also gives plenty of details on coding, the
database, installation, tuning, etcetera.  You can find more info at:
