Searching libraries

When a table is to be opened for loading into a TSR (local or shared), tableBASE uses a list of libraries (LIB-LIST) given by the application via an ML command (see Modify Library Search Order (ML)). If the application has not done an ML at the time a table is to be opened, a default is assumed by tableBASE. The default is the delivered default library named MAINLIB. When you have more than one tableBASE library, you can fine tune your application’s performance by specifying the sequence in which the libraries are searched (see Modify Library Search Order (ML)).
