Documentation--INFO: A Small Computer Data Base Management System for School Applications. The Illinois Series on Educational Application of Computers, No. 24e.
This paper documents the program used in the application of the INFO system for data storage and retrieval in schools, from the viewpoints of both the unsophisticated user and the experienced programmer interested in using the INFO system or modifying it for use within an existing school's computer system. The opening user's guide presents simple instructions with examples for using the INFO system to store data and search for certain entries. The programmer's guide covers size of files and necessary memory to use the programs, as well as the time it takes to run the programs; and a conversion guideline is included to explain those BASIC commands which are not always available on other microcomputer systems. A section on each program presents the program listing, the function of each variable, and suggestions for modifications which might be desirable for other applications. (Author/CMV)
