Visual Foxpro History

Question:

I want to know where Visual Foxpro came from. Can you give me a history of this language?

Answer:

Visual Foxpro evolved from a product called Foxpro. Foxpro started as a set of libraries that would improve the speed of DBase (an Ashton Tate product) programs. This evolved into a full-fledged product/competitor of DBase. Foxpro was then purchased by Microsoft.
