 Text Database in VX-Rexx

Hi anybody know how to do a simple database in VX-REXX without using
any special Database software.  I only have the standard version and I
would prefer to use only that.

Yes, it is quite easy. Simply read/create your own text files in VX-REXX, and
you can use LINEIN, LINEOUT to read & write records. You can prefill list
boxes etc with data from the files. I recommend you CLOSE each file after
reading/writing, otherwise you may get some unpredictable results.

I have some simple examples I can mail you if required

Is it possible to store your data in a stem variable, and then save that
variable to file.

Do they work like ARRAY in Pascal ?

Also, the container-object (in detail-view) is that just a stem variable ?
