SAL Home DBASE Utilities & Other DBMS


xmbase-grok is a simple X/Motif database manager and user interface builder that can -

  • keep phone and address lists (like a rolodex)
  • store phone call logs
  • keep web page databases
  • keep todo lists
  • manage any other database after simple GUI-driven customization
  • custom export to programmable data formats, HTML export built in
More precisely, xmbase-grok is a program for displaying and editing strings arranged in a grid of rows and columns. Each row is presented as a card consisting of multiple columns, or fields, that allow data entry. The presentation of the data is programmable; a user interface builder that allows the user to arrange fields on a card graphically is part of xmbase-grok. xmbase-grok also supports a simple language that allows sophisticated queries and data retrieval. xmbase-grok comes with the above examples and a few others as pre-built applications.
