Did you know that in FoxPro (a database management system by Microsoft from the 1990s), the interpreter cared only about the first four characters of any keyword?

Microsoft's FoxPro.

For example, instead of MODIFY STRUCTURE, you could write MODI STRU.

So, reading FoxPro code was… fun at times. It could be full of commands like:

- REPL
- APPE
- CREA
- BROW
- DELE


FoxPro was fun, I miss it sometimes.
