As Hedley suggests, Miramo ain't cheap. UniMerge, at about $700 retail, is
around 1/15 the price of Miramo, and is, in my view comparable in
capabilities. It executes on the DOS or Unix command line on Windows and
Unix platforms (even Macs equipped with RealPC). I've been using it in my
practice for the past 6 years with great success. I am not affiliated with
Refined Reports, the maker of UniMerge. Anyone who's interested can request
a 5-page paper (PDF format) from me describing database publishing with
FrameMaker and UniMerge.
