C/BASE 4GL Objects For C++ was developed to simplify the use of C/Base’s wide array of C functions and libraries.  Many of the nitty gritty details of standard Conetic C programming are now embedded as part of the Object library creating extraordinarily compact functions.  These new functions greatly reduce the overall amount of code in a program that makes debugging much simpler.  Several of the new functions are coded to decide things such as best search key or fastest index to use based on the fields you provide.  All this allows you, as a programmer, to concentrate more on the functionality that you want from a program and much less on the syntax.
