I'm an old mainframer. I'm starting a rewrite of a legacy payroll program. What language will couple most conveniently to a MySQL backend? I would like something that can do BCD math and use generators to build code for screen forms under Windows. It would be nice if a generator was available to handle menus too. I don't really want to re-invent the wheel.

I am familiar with assembler, C, C++, fortran, cobol, apl, rexx, basic, clipper and some other archaic things.
