FAQ List: Putting together a list of Tools

FAQ List: Putting together a list of Tools

Post by Troy Tinn » Fri, 08 Apr 1994 18:46:42

I would like to put together a list of database access tools (for the
benefit of all in this news group) preferably those which access an
Informix or Oracle Database from a UNIX box and load directly into a PC
application such as Lotus, Excel or a PC Database.For those of you
that have experience with one of these products, send an email to

and include the following: the name of the product, a short description
of its functions, platforms available and accessable to (or at least
what you're using) and most importantly, your likes and dislikes about
the product. I will bundle them together and post them to this news
group (as soon as I've received enough to justify a list or next week ..
whichever comes first.)

I would prefer to hear from end users and not sales people (unless
you're willing to send me a demo copy so I can do my own analysis
of the product).

Thanks. I look forward to hearing from you.
