Hi. I just can not find a better place to ask....

I want to learn 4GL from making program. Can you tell me  what 4GL is the good one and where I can find a free compiler to begin with.

Well there are two good 4GL langauges, but they are not free. They are Visual Basic and Delphi. They had a download of Delphi at www.borland.com but I think they got rid of it.  However, Visual Basic learning edition is only a hundred dollars(fifty with there rebate)

I belive these are both 4GL. I use Visual C++, and it is most certainly not a 4GL. It is a strongly type langauge.

Hi laeuchli.

It is very difficult to let me believe that Visual Basic and Delphi (or Visual Pascal) are 4GLs but Visual c++ isn't. following is others' discussion:

                                                                 By no means, NO!  It's a 3GL compiler vith a front-end code generator
(the IDE).

Visual C++ and Visual Basic operate under two differnt ideas. You  can go a long way in visual basic without knowing two much about what was happening in windows, but not so in visual C++. You can  do a lot more in visual C++ also. For example, can you write a vxd in vb? Also I do belive that VB is a 4GL. I will look somemore in the MSDN and on the web to verify it.
