Maybe the “one database equals one file” is the problem then.

I haven’t actually checked to see how KirbyBase stores information, so
just ignore that comment if it doesn’t pertain to KirbyBase.

KirbyBase is actually one directory is one database. Each table is a
single file.

Jamey – Would you be interested in a hand? I’ve mulling over some
thoughts about doing joins in KirbyBase, and disk based indexes, and
possible alternative file formats.

As regards the hand-edit-ability, you could always have multiple
backends, and a conversion tool.
