A couple more useful (and free) utilities

The first is SCC Switcher. Not that changing your SCC provider is a big deal in PowerBuilder. But it is in other tools. Particularly if you're involved in community development work with a CVS respository like CodeXchange and also use a standard SCC provider for your day-to-day work, you may need to switch between providers for some of your other development tools. SCC Switcher allows you to do this from a mouseclick in the task bar.

The other is StampEm from KnowWare. Want to provide all of the files you're about to deploy with the same date/time stamp information? Since that's a popular thing to do, there are a number of utilities out there that do it, this is one good one.

One nice thing about both of these utilities is that the source code is available as well.

Hi bruce,

I have searched for the Transqct-SQL grammar in many places on the web.But i am out of luck.

I need the grammar because i am planning to write an oopensource sybase sql pretty printer. I work for a highly reputed financial company and sybase is the heart of our OLTP system . More than 90% of our logic is in stored procedures and hence i need the grammar so that i can build a pretty printer myself.

Is there a way i can get the grammar somewhere online or can you contact me on my email. Once completed this can be added to your list of free utilities.

Hi Bruce,

Is there a place where i can find the transact sql grammar?

I have searched in many places but i found nothing useful. I need it to build an opensource SQL pretty printer for sybase.
