    PRO/5 is a robust, proven development tool for business applications. You can create true client/server applications, coordinate mail service and manage remote processes and other applications over a LAN, WAN or the Internet. PRO/5 enables communications directly with other machines via TCP or UDP sockets.

    Sockets can remain connected indefinitely, "listening" for requests, without using precious CPU resources and affecting network performance. As your enterprise grows, your PRO/5 application can also. Large file support in BASIS products gives you the ability to create and access files of virtually unlimited size on platforms that support the large file format.

    BASIS' highly recoverable file option assures the integrity of your mission-critical data. The highly recoverable file format stores record tags along with a check sum of the record data/key information to facilitate the detection of corrupted records and allow for a more thorough recovery of the file.
