Response to: It has never let me down... FOXPRO (VFP)

Can anybody tell me WHY you guys like Foxpro so much ... Coming from a Ruby/Python/SQL backgroun and having inherited a giant database library built off of Foxpro and its DBF files, I am seriously struggling. What, if any tutorials are out there? Why don't DELETE queries work like in normal SQL? What is this Exclusive/Shared nonsense? Where is there a glob-like object to help me interate through a bunch of DBF files in a single directory? I am really trying to keep an open mind here, but it's honestly hard to loathe this piece of software.
