RE: Announcement: OmniMark is Free
-----Original Message----- From: Marcus Carr [mailto:mrc@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx] Sent: Monday, May 17, 1999 5:42 PM To: xsl-list@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx; XML-Dev Mailing list Subject: 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).
