From: Vito Kuhn <firstname.lastname@example.org> Subject: RESULT: comp.lang.prograph will be removed. Newsgroups: news.announce.newgroups, news.groups, comp.lang.prograph Followup-To: news.groups Date: Sun, 18 Jun 2006 20:45:32 -0700 RESULT remove comp.lang.prograph The Big-8 Management Board has decided by consensus to remove the newsgroup comp.lang.prograph. Voting began on 17 Jun 2006, and ended on 18 Jun 2006. This group will be removed on 20 Jun 2006. RATIONALE: comp.lang.prograph This newsgroup hasn't seen any significant traffic in years. In the past 12 months alone, the group didn't even see ONE on-topic post. Scan results from http://netscan.research.microsoft.com : http://makeashorterlink.com/?Q46B1592D It's clear that comp.lang.prograph is an ideal candidate for removal. EXISTING CHARTER: comp.lang.prograph Any and all discussion about Prograph, a unique visual object-oriented dataflow programming language. What is Prograph?: Prograph is a complete programming language and environment that uses visual elements to describe objects and functions -- there is no textual syntax -- and it has its own interpreter and compiler. After over five years of availability on the Apple Macintosh, Prograph is moving cross-platform with versions for Windows and several Unices currently in testing. The most recent version of Prograph, Prograph CPX, contains a cross-platform application framework class library and high-level GUI builder. Prograph will also have the ability to generate C++ code which will be compilable under gcc linked to a set of compatibility classes on a wide variety of platforms. What about Prograph Source Code?: Prograph source code should not be loaded onto the usenet system, as it tends to be large. Instead, there is a Prograph file archive maintained at ftp.iup.edu in the info-prograph directory where files can be uploaded and downloaded via anonymous ftp. For those without ftp access, an info-prograph-sources mailing list can be established. alt.sources.mac also lists Prograph code as one of its legal posting types. END CHARTER.
