Notes Conference

The Digital Equipment Computer Users Society (DECUS) runs a conferencing system for its members called DECUServe. The system uses VAX Notes as the conferencing tool. One of the conferences, the 4GL_AND_QUERY_TOOLS conference, contains information about DATATRIEVE. Only subscribers to the system may contribute notes; however, anyone on the Internet may browse (read) the notes. Below are pointers to Notes stream containing information about DATATRIEVE.

The Title information given here has been edited to more accurately reflect my sense of the contents. The word "DATATRIEVE" has been replaced with "DTR" to shorted (where possible) the titles. The Topic is the note number in the 4GL_AND_QUERY_TOLLS conference; the Author is the USERNAME of person who entered the first note in the stream; the Date is the date of the first note in the stream; and "Repl" is the number of replies to the original note.
