 The Smalltalk OO-Browser V2.13, world's most flexible object-oriented code browser

I apologize in advance if this message sounds a bit like market-speak.  I
wrote it and I am a long-time software developer and Internet participant who
is now CEO of a small company working to provide real value to enterprise
software developers who are intent on improving both their work productivity
and quality to meet company goals.  We believe we have some deeply productive
technologies that are not yet broadly known.  We hope they will be of
interest to many readers of this newsgroup.

If you want to see more high quality software designed to meet your ever
changing needs and delivered in source code form (as the OO-Browser is), then
we hope you will give us a chance, and let your associates know about our
unique technologies and services.  Client satisfaction is our highest priority.

Thanks,

Bob Weiner

    =======================
*   What is the OO-Browser?
    =======================

    Altrasoft's OO-Browser is a high performance multi-language
    object-oriented code browser with many important capabilities not found
    elsewhere.  A data sheet of the OO-Browser's features can be
    found at " http://www.*-*-*.com/ ;.

    Here are a few of its major distinctions:

      - The OO-Browser works with the languages you do; it supports C, C++,
        Lisp and its object system (CLOS), Eiffel, Java, Objective-C, python
        and Smalltalk code.  It doesn't force you into changing toolsets if a
        new project calls for a different language or platform.  It works
        under Windows, MS-DOS and many UNIX-variants.

      - The OO-Browser reads source code exclusively so there is never
        a need to compile or to have a full system before browsing.  This is
        extremely convenient for exploring new code libraries and for working
        with systems during development.

      - Complete source code for the browser is included for local adaptation
        or extension.

      - Most operations that can be applied to a single class or method can
        also be applied to a whole set at once so that you may quickly issue
        commands and get all of the information you need at once.

      - The OO-Browser has been used successfully in many organizations since
        1990; it is mature technology (unlike many Java tools available
        today) that continues to keep pace with the many changes in industrial
        software development.

      - The OO-Browser runs within the powerful GNU Emacs or XEmacs editors or
        as part of our own integrated development environment, InfoDock.
        It can also call out to other editors such as vi.  Browser features
        can be used directly in the editor without display of the browser
        user interface, e.g. symbol names can be completed and definitions
        of symbols can be found at the touch of a key.

      - An attractive X window graphical front end is also provided.  It is
        easy to operate and lets you quickly browse large hierarchies of
        information generated by the browser such as class or method
        relations.

    See " http://www.*-*-*.com/ ; for screenshots of the
    OO-Browser in action.

    ========================================================
*   How will the OO-Browser give me a competitive advantage?
    ========================================================

    If you develop or have the need to understand significant amounts of
    object-oriented code for a living, the OO-Browser can simplify your life,
    help you produce better code and better architectures.  It can also speed
    your software development projects, thereby reducing their costs and
    helping achieve a time-to-market advantage.  The productivity
    improvements possible allow it to pay for itself in under a month.

      - Explore existing class libraries right when you need to
        without compiling.

      - Quickly learn and navigate existing code bases which lack good
        documentation.

      - Speed demonstrations and code reviews by giving participants a
        visual context of the structure of the code.

      - Debug code faster since many items in the code are automatically
        hyperlinked to their definitions.  If combined with Altrasoft's
        Hyperbole product, you can even embed an unlimited number of powerful
        hyperlinks within your code comments to make browsing even faster.

    ================================================================
*   What key language-specific features does the OO-Browser contain?
    ================================================================

    Beyond the language-independent features of the OO-Browser such as class
    inheritance and method browsing, each language module includes
    easy to use support for the following features:

      C           - grouped browsing of many standard C types;
                    (C support is included with other languages such as C++
                     so it is not available separately.)

      C++         - C browsing, method overloading, template support,
                    method calls and header browsing

      Eiffel      - renamed feature lookup, features displayed by type,
                    reference browsing, short and flat interfaces

      Java        - features displayed by type and full support for
                    interface browsing and inheritance

      Lisp        - CLOS support (multi-method browsing) and def construct
                    browsing by category

      Objective-C - C browsing, extensive category and protocol browsing
                    support

      Python      - imported module and documentation string browsing

      Smalltalk   - standard OO-Browser capabilities only
