In addition to our commercial offerings PFCS Corporation is involved in a number of side and non-profit projects:

Unix Mumps

Mumps is a powerful string manipulation language with an embedded database, and is ideally suited for applications which store and access large random databases. PFCS Corporation's Unix Mumps is a high-performance, well-integrated Mumps implementation for Unix. Exceeding the ANSI X11.1-1990 Mumps Standard, Unix Mumps provides arbitrary precision arithmetic and unlimited subscript, data, and variable storage.

Mumps applications include health care, accounting and finance, manufacturing and inventory control, telemarketing, shipping, publications libraries, law enforcement, facilities management, office automation, human resources management, full-text search and retrieval, sales management and order tracking, and computer-based instruction.

Unix Mumps has its own project page.
