Good to see you here, Cal. Seems like it's been a few months.
I've had a hobby of playing with custom data stores, and while I haven't
spent much time with ISAM (I prefer to waste disk space in less
interesting ways <g>), maybe some of what I've been experimenting with
could be useful.
Data storage and display is such a broad topic - can you share some
specifics of what you have thus far?
And if the data is being stored in a stack file, why ISAM over something
like delimited chunks in custom props?
