I thought I would start a new thread since the other was quite OT. x
said there was likely a legal definition of software and I haven't
searched for that yet, but I did find a legal def of database at
"'database' shall mean a collection of independent works, data or
other materials arranged in a systematic or methodical way and
individually accessible by electronic or other means."
By this definition, would "software" be a database? It might be
interesting to see how legal def of software and database differ from
each other and from country to country.
Anyway, to get this particular thread started, my question is: What is
a precise definition fof the term "software" when used in the phrase
"software developer" and (how) does software relate to databases?
