Actually, my first job was as a tech writer/dBase programmer. As I
recall, dBase IV was backward compatible with dBase III -- I don't
remember recompiling my dBase III programs, but then again, I don't
remember too much about that other beloved AshtonTate product,
MultiMate II, either (thank God). (I still have a copy, though.)
