This package is a relational database managing system. With it, you can create and store databases, manipulate its contents and structure. You can develop database programs, with the included Amos extension. You don't need to learn any database language. Your existing Amos experiences will help you to develop the program, which using databases.
The package contains some external program besides the extension. Within those programs started the next stage of the development, the Amos independent system.
(The Amos is an outdated programming language, which can't keep its abilities with the AGA chip set, and it will useless when the P-OS arrives. In the present version's core is the Amos, because it has the largest part of my experiences.)
The above is written at the beginning of the project. Some things changed since then. There is a group who taking care of Amos. The next generation Amiga is a vapor, and there is still no other alternative choice for a great computer beside my loved Amiga. So, I don't want to port my code to anywhere. Yes, I loose my mind as early as I got my first Amiga.
The whole project started as a billing, and inventory program, for our little shop. If you looking for about a similar application, feel free to contact me.
|What you need?||To use Symbase, you need Amos Professional V2.0+, and certainly an Amiga.|

Using SymBase, this added instructions gives the ability of Dbase database handling to Amos programs.
- the used database file is Xbase compatible|
- internal routines written in assembly, so it must be fast;
- you can open up to 65000 file at a time;
- not tested on animals;
- in the development not used any M$ product;
