    Great tutorial.

    They are very insightful.

    Thanks for your sincere efforts.

    Just needed one advise. Would it be advisable to modernize TurboPower’s B-Tree Filer (or FlashFiler for client server) ?

    I personally think it a full featured RAW power database engine.

      The old BTree is pretty cool and it was blazingly fast if memory serves me right.
      I for once would love to see it updated and given a nice polish. There is a lot of code that might be old, but that in truth is very effective.
      I tend to roam around looking at older units, and you learn something every single time.
      Old does not mean bad, that is a fetish that has been created by marketing. The pyramids looks pretty solid šŸ™‚

      yogiyang, modernizing FlashFiler would be an exercise in wasted time, because it has already been done. NexusDB is the direct descendant of FF, and you would need to do the equivalent of 15 years of development just to get even. šŸ™‚

    May be you are right as far as modernizing and using FF2 in production environment is concerned, but when one wants to learn about DB internals it would proved to be a treasure trove.!!!

    And NexusDB is not open source so one cannot learn from its 15 years experience.
