We plan to purchase a "low-end" File Management System (FMS) that will
run on either the Sun or VAX computers with UNIX 4.2 operating system. The
FMS will be used to provide basic indexed random access to files. Facilities
on file and record level locking along with interfaces to C application
programs are mandatory. We have found two FMS:
C-ISAM by Relational Database Systems, Inc. and
Phact ISAM by UniPress Software, Inc.,
but would like to know about other existing FMS for evaluations and comparisons.
FMS that resembles a database management system is inappropriate for
our needs. We can not afford the overheads associated with such FMS.
Can anyone tell me of FMS other than the above two ? I need to know the name
of the system, its vendor and, possibly, phone numbers. Any lead is
