Hey Robert,

> Is there any way for a FB3 app to integrate into/with a C++ app?

I *think* this might depend on how much integration you need. Are you
writing a segment within their code or are you writing a standalone that
accesses their code during runtime or are you writing a plug-in/filter or do
you just need their header files?

I do feel for you as I know how hard it is to break-away from FB. I learned
asm just so I could use it inline for non-supported TLBX calls over using
CW. Now that's dedication! (BTW, it was worth purchasing CW just to quickly
dig out the trap calls from their headers!) But given a choice between
losing a job and working in a language that I hate, I think I'd at least
make the attempt in C(++) if it comes to that. The comedienne Carol Leifer
once said: "My husband gets so upset when we're driving and he gets lost...
it's like he'll never get back to his life." Likewise, learning a new
language doesn't have to displace the old one. Just think of it as a
temporary pit-stop, or bit-stop! (Too corny, even for me! ;)
