It doesn't make sense yet. First, you will have to define: "RowAddress", "ColumnAddress" and "BlockAddress" as part of some coherent computational model.

Obviously, you are trying to define some computational model for the physical implementation of a dbms. You apparently want to discard the linear memory addressing scheme used on almost all computer architectures for a different addressing scheme.

Once you completely define the computational model, what you say might make sense. Until then, you are just using meaningless terms.

Apparently, in your addressing scheme, one may not access memory through a single pointer. Instead, one must use three pointers. Received on Sun Jun 04 2006 - 12:25:04 CDT
