Re: Database program

The spreadsheet "tsiag" the console version of siag spreadsheet from
the Siag Office Suite might fit your needs, I use it for my bookkeeping
applications.  It will save your data in a variety of formats and
has minimal memory needs.
	A simple but fast database I use is NoSql, a flat
file database which saves data in a tab delimited text file.  Your
data can be edited with a text editor.
hope this helps
