This directory contains examples of using EDB. The following files are available; see the documentation for file naming conventions. README This file. This is not EDB's README file, only that for its examples. forms-demo2.dat The database supplied as "demo2" of the Forms package. forms-demo2.fmt forms-demo2.report forms-demo2-int.dat The same database in EDB internal layout. arb-demo An example database in "arbitrary" format; it uses functions arb-demo.dba rather than rules to read and write the disk file. It also arb-demo.fmt uses an alternate format file. arb-demo.home-fmt arb-demo-regexp The same database as that above, but with its layout arb-demo-regexp.dba specified by a set of regular expressions. When you do `db-find-file' on arb-demo-regexp, EDB will ask for its display format; you should use arb-demo.fmt. eicsw.dat Alan Stebbens's EIC software database, which uses enumerated eicsw.fmt types and the date type. eicsw.dba passwd.fmt A format file for use with /etc/passwd; do db-find-file on /etc/passwd and specify this file as the format file. tepdb Michael Ernst's address database in internal file layout; tepdb.fmt includes change functions, aging of data, reports, mailing tepdb.dba labels, and usage instructions. tepdb.instr rolo-jik.dat Jonathan Kamens's rolodex database; includes user-definable rolo-jik.fmt fields and dynamic data display buffer alignment. rolo-jik.dba rolo-jik.doc intro-and-addr Bob Chassell's introduction to EDB for the complete novice, plus an address database and code for producing mailing labels. btxdb.README Instructions for retrieving Thorsten Ohl's BibTeX database. edbibtex Michael Burschik's BibTeX database and sample format files. Includes documentation, example databases, and more. geneal Instructions for retrieving Michael Patton's geneal database, which includes inter-record links and tagged file layout. www-links* URLs and associated metadata.
