SAL Home DBASE Relational DBMS


Character Mode Recital is a fully-functional Relational Database Management System and Fourth Generation Environment (RDBMS and 4GE) for Unix and OpenVMS systems. Complete Information Systems applications can be generated with ease using built in development tools that help with table definitions, application data dictionary rules, screen layouts, and even report or label generation. Add the extended Xbase language and object oriented programming capabilities and you've got an instant solution for any application development requirement.

Recital will also open up access to your entire information systems environment by providing access to multiple database formats on both UNIX and VMS systems. Character cell applications can be ported with ease on over 70 UNIX and VMS platforms. Access to Recital, FoxPro, dBase, C-ISAM, and RMS data is handled through standard Xbase command syntax and user designed forms. Network access to Oracle, Ingres, Informix, DB2, and RDB data is handled with ease using the Recital Server Interface technology.
