Neo, you keep posting this stuff I don't see and can't imagine what the output would be. I see '(create..' and ('select...' and '(and...' and '(;...' all over the place -- but no output. Is it in the tableau that appears at the bottom of your interface?

What's a class directory? What's a main directory? What's an (it)? What are those hex-digit-looking things? What are those splats? What are those instances? What are those +s? What's a type? What do all those &s do?

You keep asking someone to demonstrate that some RDBMS can do what dbDummy can do -- but what is it doing? Received on Fri Jun 02 2006 - 20:24:18 CDT
