Hi Eric,

Thanks for your quick reply.

Thanks for the kind offer. Are you saying FreeDiams handles the data access 
part and acts as a mediator between the database and Medintux ?

So I assume you have written some interface to talk to the two drug sources or 
so you import the data in a special way.

I will forward that kind offer to the GNUmed mailing list. Have you heard of 
drugref2 before ? From the standpoint of any EMR it would be really worthwhile 
if a common interface could be developed that abstracts the underlying data 
sources. I guess your work is a great step in that direction and I wonder how 
much work it would be to work on something like drugref given your work.

I imagine something like that:

FreeDiams cmd line
FDA data/DPD data/French data

I see.

Who is working on FreeMedForms and how far is it advanced ? How is it 
different from GNUmed (other then programming language)

I take it from your videos that you are developing on MS WIndows ?

Take care,
