What is most typical of the ULTIM
system is the ease of coding derived from the numerous automatisms implemented to eliminate the repetitive operations:
- When referring to a dictionary entity in the program, all the related definitions automatically become available.
- No coding is required for opening and closing the files and databases.
- The field descriptions may include their print format, hence preventing a great number of repetitions.
sorting and the formatting of the reports are greatly automated: it is
possible to quickly create a report by simply naming the fields in the
desired order; the pagination, the headings and the spacing being managed by the system.
field definitions may provide automatic calls to functions
modifying the format of the data to be processed by the programs.
- No coding is required for validating the data entered on the keyboard.
Of course, there are also options and parameters that allow you to modify the default settings of the system.
