Is VB a 4GL?


When I asked following quesion in another place, an expert answered that visual Basic is a 4GL! Can you confirm that he is right and help me to find another 4GL.

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.

Yes VB is considered a 4GL  .

It satisfy the feature of a 4GL . It allows the design of screens
,connection to Database and it is easy and fast to develop .

Some of 4GL Program that can be found are VB (Basic), Visual Cafe(Java), FoxPro ............

I think you are able to download their trial version but not the original . From the net . Go to their Website (Microsoft, Sun) and search for the product .
