Software review

  • Robert G. Crawford


The QL retrieval system is a significant piece of software. While it is not the kind of system one would use to manage a small personal collection of technical reports, it does provide the necessary capabilities to handle information retrieval requirements involving large data bases and/or multiple data bases and/or multiple users. It has evolved into a reliable, conceptually sound piece of software, especially suitable for applications in which data base modification consists principally of periodic updating (with little deletion or modification of existing data), and in which fast retrieval is desired.
