Internet Mail Server
A companion product to TK-WEB, TK-IMAIL is actually two E-Mail servers that provide full mail functionality on any local or wide area network using TCP technology.
Because these servers support the popular SMTP and POP3 protocols, they can be used with any Internet capable mail client such as those provided by Microsoft Exchange or Outlook Express, Netscape Messenger, Eudora, Pegasus Mail, etc. Because they run in the M environment, they are easily integrated with other M applications for custom needs. Configuration of these two servers is accomplished by means of a browser.

TK-WORKS Programmers' Workbench provides an efficient and effective solution to the need for an advanced programming environment which is both portable and completely self-contained, regardless which implementation of M may be in use.
TK-WORKS features a full-screen Routine Editor, Routine Management, Release Management, Global Management and other utilities which work together to reduce the time required to develop and maintain application systems.
As is the case with all PG&A products, it is screen oriented and makes full use of the function keys provided with most types of terminals. The functions available in the Routine Editor, as well as each of the system's utilities, are available in only a few keystrokes enabling programmers to perform routine tasks in minimal time.
This particular distribution of TK-WORKS is the % version which will need to be stored in a directory that supports % routine names.

Using TK-FORM, software developers have all of the tools they need at their fingertips for creating sophisticated data entry screens: screen painting, field definition, flow control, and pop-up windows for reference tables and context sensitive help. And all screens and control instructions are preprocessed to optimize run-time execution resulting in minimal impact on system performance.
Often used to prototype new applications, TK-FORM provides an environment in which the development team is limited only by its imagination. And TK-FORM can accomodate even the most difficult data entry situations including multiple item records, nested records, simple segments and reference table lookups.
Because of its many integrated features, use of TK-FORM can result in significant time savings by eliminating much of the M code that would normally have to be designed and written.
Not only can applications be developed more quickly, but maintenance of TK-FORM applications is much easier. Changes to a screen or field can be ready to run in just minutes, usually without touching a line of M code. And when TK-SCHEMA is employed, changes to the characteristics of any field can be compiled automatically into all the screens that reference that field.

TK-GUARDIAN is a comprehensive menu/security system. With the security option, TK-GUARDIAN will ardently protect your application systems from unauthorized access. Use it to design your own logon and maintain user, device and security classification files. Because of its unique encryption algorithm, pass- words and other sensitive information remain undiscovered.
Security managers appreciate the comprehensive utilities provided as well as the flexibility of the security classification system. Classifications may be assigned to both users and devices on the system. After logon, secured items can be displayed or hidden entirely. In either case, users are prevented from selecting items which are not available.
Often used just for its menu environment, TK-GUARDIAN's full-screen menus are appreciated by users for the on-line help and ease of Point 'N Shoot item selection. Furthermore, shortcuts to any menu or application in the system can be added and maintained by the users themselves.
Many sites take advantage of the activity log which can be selectively turned on or off. When on, TK-GUARDIAN will keep a log of accesses at any device and be able to provide such information as user name, time of logon, applications used, duration of use, and time and nature of logoff.
