The following is a list of the programs and tools used in developing this site.






The CMS, Inc. Original Sales and Marketing Documents were written by Robert M. Fry in Microsoft Word™ (95 and 97) and converted to HTML.

Original Job Types, Job Descriptions, Statistics, Sales Analysis and Sales Data came from a huge Microsoft Access™ 95-97 Database. This database was developed in 1995 and continually maintained by this author using Access™ Tables, Forms, Queries, Reports and several hundred lines of Microsoft Visual Basic™.  The above included data was exported to a SpreadSheet for further formatting.

Lists and accumulated data exported to Microsoft Excel™ (95 and 97) are constantly arranged, sorted and exported to a tab delimited text file.

A fast HTML code generator was developed and is maintained by the author which creates well over 200 indexed web pages from the SpreadSheet exported data file.

The code generator was written in C and C++ using a Borland™ C++ 4.0 Compiler.  It is a Win32s program with over 8000 lines of original code.

The Common Gateway Interface (CGI) scripts are written by the author in Perl 5.0.

Once exported to our server, the site is maintained and updated using Microsoft Front Page™ 98.

Funding and Overseeing of this project is provided by our President and CEO, Robert Newell Fry Jr.

Special Thanks to Microsoft™ and Borland™ for their outstanding products.

Thanks also to Brent, Jim and all the guys at CMS, who always have ideas.  And to Helen Marie, for putting up with late nights and learning curves.

Thanks also to my friends David, Johnny and Don ... they said I could.
