Rapid Application Development
Save time and money when developing applications for your DOS-based portable data terminal using the Universal Program Generator (UPG) from PSC.
Simple, Yet Powerful
UPG operates within a 32-bit Windows-based graphical programming environment. UPG is simple enough for non-programmers to use, yet offers the features, functionality, and power to develop advanced applications. UPG provides non-programmers step-by-step instructions and settings via an on-line tutorial, enabling the novice programmer to learn tool usage and programming techniques. Programmers will find that UPG simplifies complex tasks such as validation and data manipulation.
Advanced features include ‘C' code hooks, attachment of custom libraries and functions, direct serial port access, program licensing to specific portables, capabilities for removing data, and storing or displaying data as required. When programming in a multi-platform/multilingual environment, UPG even allows you to adjust your program to fit the screen sizes found between different portables within the same module.
