Executive Brief. What Is It?
It's a RAD (rapid application development) IDE (integrated development environment) called T4
it's been designed to be familiar to VB6 users, the classic RAD, still favoured by many as the "go to" software tool.
T4 TransCompiles for extensibility. Or it uses the VB6 compiler with a new IDE GUI for true VB6 compatibility.
