Ugh! :-) The day I got a TurboPascal 7.0 box and manuals I
stopped using this language. I hope nobody gives me a similar
box for C. :-)

After some testing, I think I'm completely happy with CDK and
forms (which is even usable for scripting).

I try to avoid C++ whenever possible, even for X interactive
applications I prefer Gtk with C.

The SAA interface is much too complicated for the things I'd
have to use it. It really needs to be as simple as possible,
with a very narrow set of functionalities. SAA/TV is really
too much ("too good") for this.
