Welcome to the articles
and code snippets site!
We started this site as place for different samples and snippets
related or non-related to our products. The site is not organized in a
strict form and concentrates on the content. It is hard to organize so
different samples that may need functional pages and wide range of
downloads sometimes. So the site is simple but convenient enough, I hope.
About the samples and snippets
Most samples come with articles. Many of the samples will need some
additional software - components or ALP (Active
Local Pages). Not everything is for the WEB but network connectivity,
common usage of the same code on a server and desktop are our primary
targets - so most of the snippets and samples are applicable for WEB usage
or aim the WEB/desktop integration.
Active Server Pages/Active Local Pages
Our product ALP
(Active Local Pages) is something intended to give more opportunities to
the WEB and mostly ASP programmers. It is a local ASP/CGI engine and runs
in the IE or in special viewer that extends the IE with standard windows
menus and much more. So it is an engine that makes ASP technology good for
desktop applications and not only WEB development. As something simple,
opened for extensions it is a real competitor to such technologies like
Delphi or other RAD environments. And in addition to everything else it
makes possible to use exactly the same code on the local machine and on
the server - as long as running the application on the both ends makes
sense! In difference to the other environments ALP needs only a little
amount of redistributable files and may work from autorun CDs without
You will probably ask for .NET and so on. Well - the question is
reasonable and there will be optional support for .NET but even if .NET
and Java are called "OS independent", "write once run
everywhere" they are not. To use them you need to update the machine
- install and configure (sometimes) them and just them think for your
application. No need to mention the old OS versions. ALP in contrast is
based on well-known old technology - Active Scripting and COM. It runs on
Windows 95, 98, ME, NT, 2k, XP and can be distributed with everything the
application may need in much smaller packages and installed without need
to go there and check the machine.
Licensing: ALP is not free but this is not a problem if you are
not ready to pay or can't pay at this moment. The shareware is not time
limited. The nags are not too much and not too boring so you can do your
work and just then buy it. We are developers and we need money as like you
but we know how it can be sometimes so we are trying to be as tolerant and
kind as possible.

ASP/ALP) as needed. The usage of pure scripting allows to

Publishing articles and other materials
from this site on other sites.
The publication of all the materials from this site is allowed. You
need only to keep author and copyright information with the
material/article and keep all the links in working condition. Please (not
required) inform us for such
publications we will be glad to exchange links or find other way to help
Technical notes about publishing articles and samples on other sites:
Some articles have related downloads - code, sample implementations,
components. We recommend publishing everything on the site together if
possible. If you need the complete package or have some questions - some
notes about the language (Our mother's language is not English) feel free
