The cardiological/medical clinician and researcher of this present day is of necessity faced progressively more with computer-based information garage. curiosity is naturally concentrated totally on the medical use of such databases greater than at the technical layout itself, aside from a few very particular, custom-made purposes. For the latter technique, there are at the moment many software program programs commercially to be had, in particular designed to be used within the laptop setting.

Sample text

Another database package that was designed for personal computers illustrates a slightly different approach. DATAEASE is also a relational model, and it was also designed initially for personal computers (though it now runs on mini-computers as well). However, it has one feature that distinguishes it from dBASE: it provides security of access to files. When a new database is defined, it can be accessed only by user-defined ID and password. Files are protected from user tampering by being stored in such a way that they cannot be edited by programs other than those in DATABASE (without a major programming effort to get around this security provision).

For reasons given below, this assessment may be premature. There are two shortcomings to 'classic' hierarchical models as implemented in systems such as IBM's IMS package. First, they require the definition of one viewpoint as the principal mechanism for classifying items entered in a database. Although means are provided for alternate indexes to give some support for separate viewpoints, the internal structure is such that these packages tend to perform very slowly when alternate viewpoints are used.

It has competed successfully in comparison with other commercial packages, winning some important contracts over much better known vendors. Fileman, as it is known, allows users to define either a hierarchical or a flat 38 file (quasi-relational) structure. This is an important consideration, since many clinical databases are hierarchical in nature, and this system does permit such databases to be defined in a natural manner. In its public domain versions (there is now a commercially supported version), it has deficiencies in input features and some awkwardness in user interface, but it can be used by novices without previous training, and it can also be refined by expert users to provide efficient database solutions.
