FRED, a Front End for Databases.
Crystal, Maurice I.; Jakobson, Gabriel E.
Online, v6 n5 p27-30 Sep 1982
FRED (a Front End for Databases) was conceived to alleviate data access difficulties posed by the heterogeneous nature of online databases. A hardware/software layer interposed between users and databases, it consists of three subsystems: user-interface, database-interface, and knowledge base. Architectural alternatives for this database machine are being investigated. (EJS)
