Abstract: This program is a small database program designed to
store and retrieve information of a relatively simple
nature. Facilities to manage this information are MENU
oriented and for the most part self-explanatory.
There is ENTER DATA, UPDATE DATA (to change or modify),
DELETE A RECORD (to delete a RECORD), SEARCH (to find a
specific RECORD), PRINT a REPORT (to the default
DIRECTORY or to the attached PRINTER), SCREEN REPORT
(prints the REPORT to the SCREEN), LIST ALL DATA
(displays all DATA in the file with RECORD and FIELD
numbers), SORT (a general purpose SORT of the FILE by
FIELD name), and EXIT (to quit).
This program is designed to work on relatively small
data. The maximum number of RECORDS is 1000 with a
maximum number of FIELDS being 20. This can be increased
depending upon available disk/diskette storage space.
The program was written with the beginning user in mind,
and performs the same on VAX/VMS, PDP-11 RSX-11M, or
The program produces and works from two (2) files;
Filename.BBS A sequential file containing FILE
Filename.BBD A VIRTUAL file containing the actual
The filename is a filename that you provide.

(filename.DOC) which can contain data in the selected
Release notes distributed with each order.
