If you so desire, search Google Groups c.d., c.d.o. and c.d.t. using words such as "Neo", "Badour", NULLs, normalization, redundant, etc.

My use of "range" and "scope" appears to have been fuzzy. In the context of a tool/methodology, I meant to use the word "scope" to define the range of problems/applications for which it can provide practical solutions. Thus the scope of a size 8 mm wrench would be nuts of size 8 mm (-+ some tolerance). The scope of a single adjustable wrench might be nuts from size 1 to 20 mm. The scope of a similar size pair of pliers might be even larger as it not only handles nut sizes 1 to 20 mm, but the nut head can be of irregular shapes. If someone can suggest better terminology, I would appreciate it.

While SQL itself probably has some limitations, the underlying source is the RM model itself. This also I have discussed at length in prior threads and have no desire to do currently.

Could your post the reason why?

Thus far, it doesn't appear to me that you are qualified to make the above evaluation because you haven't posted any concrete scripts/solutions to problems that I asserted are impractical in RM in several recent c.d.t. threads. But it is good that you have a skeptical mind :) Received on Wed Apr 12 2006 - 22:32:31 CEST
