FunnelWeb User Testimonials

Praise for FunnelWeb:



"I've been fooling around with FunnelWeb for about three days now, and I'm convinced that this is one of the most powerful tools I have encountered in almost two decades of programming. I'm in the process of converting several thousand lines of very repetitive code to FunnelWeb macros; I can't believe how EASY it is, and how GOOD the resulting source code and documentation are. Thank you for this tool!"

"I really like the 'quality' of the FW distribution. Well done Ross! I cannot call it 'professional quality' because much of the 'professional' software I have seen has been VERY POOR. Your package is better than 'professional', but I don't know of an appropriate adjective."
George Vokalek (
Hardware Engineer,

"I have used FunnelWeb on two ASSEMBLER modules. Written for a microcontroller with NO DEBUGGING POSSIBLE, so correctness and emphasis on getting it right was important.

I found it forced me to reorganise the code a bit, to get my concepts straight. By the time I did this, and documented what I was doing, [including a C version of an algorithm in one module] It looked good, and worked in a few passes.

I am VERY happy with the results. ...

And, I got a very nice listing to present the customer!!"

"I've done the regression testing, and it worked without a hitch. You've done a nice job making the sucker portable. My system is a mono NeXTstation running NeXTSTEP 2.1 with 16 MB of RAM."

"I use FunnelWeb for everything from my FutureBASIC programming to maintaining my web pages. It is a cool tool, and one of the few literate programming environments that are (1) language-independent and (2) available on the Mac. I couldn't be more pleased with it."
Ron Hale-Evans (
Lexington, Kentucky, USA.
20-Oct-1996. (Authorized to be quoted 20-Oct-1996).


"Let me say that FunnelWeb is the most impressive literate programming tool I have yet seen. The language is powerful, the tutorial manual excellent, and I really love the new weave facility to output both TeX and HTML (both of which are very visually appealing -- a rare feat these days)."
Paul Wanis (
Electrical Engineer,
San Diego, CA USA.
04-Jun-1999. (Authorized to be quoted 30-Dec-1999).


"Great program. It has allowed me to make maintainable some previously unmaintainable code."
