tableBASE subroutines is intended for programmers who are interested in using lower-level data access routines. This is usually done when one of two conditions occur:
- The data relationships are very stable and can be easily managed in programmer controlled storage.
- The access speed is critical and a shorter instruction path length is required.
Use of the TBACC and TBINDX routines should be restricted to personnel who manage program storage areas.
In addition, for those programmers processing the contents of a View, information on the subroutine DKTBNAME, which provides View Name conversion, is also provided.
