Hi, I want to keep track of parts used in building electrical control-boxes. What is the typical way of setting up a database? Do you construct a front-end for forms with some kind of scripting language? What is the most popular database and user-interface-builder combination in the gnu/linux world? I know nothing much about interfacing to or using a database, but i can do any scripting/programming if needed. There's tons of google hits, but no newbie howtos.
