SAL Home DBASE Relational DBMS


Typhoon is a relational database management system. It was originally inspired by Raima's db_VISTA (today Raima Data Manager) but is relational rather than network based. Typhoon lacks some of db_VISTA's features, but also contains a number of nice features not found in db_VISTA. All relations are defined in a so called Data Definition Language (ddl) file. You define the database relations like you would write a C structure with chars, ints, strings, multidimensional arrays, nested union and structures, etc. Then you define primary, alternate and foreign keys for each relation. The Data Definition Language Processor (ddlp) compiles the database defintion into a binary file which constitutes the database description. The database relations are accessed via C subroutines which manipulate individual records within a table.
