Overview

For years developers of database systems have relied on Btrieve as their file record manager of choice for PC client-server systems. This robust utility is widely acknowledged as the de facto standard in parts of the software industry where networks and efficient, reliable databases are critical, such as finance and accounting. However, many facets of Btrieve have remained undocumented. Until this book.

Btrieve Complete shows everything you need to know for designing better programs using Btrieve and for troubleshooting and maintaining current systems. The first part of the book details how Btrieve organizes and manages data. Part two of the book guides you through the file and index formats of Btrieve, information that is difficult for programmers and administrators to obtain.

You'll learn about:

  • Btrieve's indexing methods
  • the Application Programming Interface
  • the undocumented file layout
  • header page content
  • data corruption prevention and repair
  • optimal system configuration.
In short, you'll discover how to get the best out of Btrieve.
