SAL Home DBASE Utilities & Other DBMS


MetaKit is an efficient database library with a small footprint. It's a cross between flat-file, RDBMS, and OODBMS.

MetaKit is a highly dynamic cross-platform database library providing robust storage for medium-sized database applications (a few dozen Mb). Nested data structures can de defined, accessed, and manipulated, using commit/rollback to maintain data integrity at all times. Datafiles are portable across all platforms (Unix, Windows, Mac, VMS, DOS, and more).

MetaKit offers features such as commit/rollback and high-performance memory-mapped file paging (on platforms which support this) that you would usually only expect in full-blown database packages and servers.
