I am trying to write a dBase program that will allow rapid indexed
searches of a database by keyword. In other words, I want to have a
database consisting of records each including a field that can include
up to (say) 100 characters of keywords, and then I want to be able to
display all records that include a particular keyword of interest
WITHOUT going through a record by record search. All the ways I can
think of to do this are very clumsy. Anyone with good ideas out

Many bibliography management programs do this, but without knowing
about their quality, I'm hesitant to go that way.

thanks in advance. I will post replies to anyone who want them.
