Announcement: OmniMark is Free
[Cross posted to XSL and XML-Dev] If the major impediments to the adoption of OmniMark are cost and the fact that it's proprietary, this must surely change the equation for a few people. Maybe I'm biased, but I see this as one of the big announcements of the year. > OmniMark Technologies Corporation challenges Perl > Company announces OmniMark 5 programming language is free > > New Orleans, Louisiana - May 17, 1999 - OmniMark Technologies Corporation, > developer of the OmniMark® programming language, made several significant > product announcements at its OmniMark Developers Conference today. > > OmniMark president and CEO John McFadden announced the OmniMark programming > language is now free. The programming language has developed a strong > following since it was first introduced 10 years ago. > > A high level language, OmniMark is a clear alternative to Perl for > developing server-based web or network applications and CGI scripts without > having to make the leap to Java. > > "OmniMark programs are easier to write, read, and maintain," said John > McFadden. "OmniMark 5 combines a server safe network programming model with > an unmatched text processing language. Throw in its intuitive, integrated > approach to XML and you have a compelling combination." > > To make programming in OmniMark even easier, McFadden also announced the > release of the OmniMark Integrated Development Environment (IDE). This > powerful Windows-based environment includes an OmniMark-smart editor and > interactive debugger which lets developers write, analyze, and perfect > applications quickly and cost effectively. For example, the IDE can be used > to quickly develop and test CGI scripts interactively without invoking a web > server. OmniMark IDE can be purchased over the web for $995. > > A free, full-featured version of the OmniMark IDE, called OmniMark Home and > School, is available for personal and academic use. > > OmniMark already has a large following among Global 2000 companies who have > come to appreciate the robustness and ease of use of the language. Among the > attendees at this year's developers conference are representatives from > Boeing, IBM, Nokia Telecomunications, Airborne Express, and Underwriters > Laboratory. > > To find out more about obtaining free OmniMark software, visit their > website. > -- Regards, Marcus Carr email: mrc@a... ___________________________________________________________________ Allette Systems (Australia) www: http://www.allette.com.au ___________________________________________________________________ "Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler." - Einstein xml-dev: A list for W3C XML Developers.
