ParallelFox is a parallel processing library for Visual FoxPro that I’ve been working on for a little while now. Parallel processing is getting a lot of attention these days and with good reason. Parallel extensions/libraries are popping up for all languages/platforms, and if VFP were still in development at Microsoft, I’m sure the Fox Team would be hard at work on adding those features for us. But, that’s no reason for us to do without. FoxPro developers can benefit from parallel processing just like everyone else, and ParallelFox aims to help us do that.
The first Beta release of ParallelFox is now on VFPX, along with a couple of training videos. The plan is to provide more videos, but there is a lot to cover and it is slow going. In the meantime, there should be enough info on VFPX to get you started. Please download ParallelFox, play with it, and let me know what you think.
