With all the name changes we had recently one could get confused. Over the years our good and faithful XPP has been ‘owned’ by the following companies:
- Xyvision Enterprise Solutions (X.E.S)
- SDL XySoft
So depending in which decade (century?) you were using XPP, you could be speaking about:
- Xyvision IPS (Integrated Publishing System)
- Xyvision XPP,
- XES XPP (hmm:-),
- XyEterprise XPP,
- SDL XySoft XPP (almost as short-lived as the too sexy XES XPP).
Finally nowadays the official product name is: SDL XPP.
To my big suprise, I learned today that there is also a thing called SDL Perl.
Great, so now I can have an SDL XPP system and use SDL Perl. That sounds like paradise to me. Does this mean that XyPerl’s success story was so big, that SDL decided to use Perl as the language of choice for all their products? Not exactly, but SDL Perl does really exist.
