Guineu is an alternative runtime library for Microsoft Visual FoxProŽ 9.0 that runs on any Microsoft .NET compatible platform. Guineu has to offer something for you, if you
Guineu is currently under development. If you are interested in an early preview, you are herewith invited to participate in the Guineu beta. Please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are just curious what the current version can do, feel free to browse the documentation. To see Guineu on different platforms, check out the inventory sample.
How does Guineu work?
Guineu is a byte code interpreter that executes compiled Visual FoxProŽ files directly. Guineu provides a compatible environment in which applications are executed.
How compatible is Guineu really?
The goal is to reach full compatibility with Visual FoxProŽ 9.0. Realistically it will take at least several years to get there, though. I plan to implement features incrementally in the order of demand. Frequently used features get implemented first, sparsely used features have to wait.
What do I need?
Guineu is an add-on for Microsoft Visual FoxProŽ 9.0. In order to use Guineu, you need a valid Visual FoxProŽ 9.0 license. Guineu is not a replacement for Visual FoxProŽ. It's an extension to explore possibilities beyond what's available today. Visual FoxProŽ is required for development but not at runtime.
Is Guineu open source?
No. Guineu will be a commercial product. Pricing and distribution details haven't yet finalized. My idea is to sell Guineu as a subscription of around 89 Euros/USD 110 for each developer per year. Distribution of applications would be royalty-free.
What does Guineu mean?
Guineu is Catalan, a language spoken in Northern Spain, Andorra and some parts of France. La guineu (it's female) translates to "fox" in English. When pronounced the "U" is silent and "E" and "U" are two separate vowels.
