MADAM Moderately Advanced DAta Management is a file builder, a file manipulator, and report generator. It provides a means for taking initially unorganized lines of data records and organizing them in a describable and retrievable manner into units files. It maintains these files, creates new ones, and prints the contents of these files in various formats. The MADAM System operates on a particular users problem by means of a set of specification statements in a language very much like that of the user. MADAM itself is made up of computer programs which translate and interpret the specification statements and perform the required operations. The specifications are incorporated in a control card deck that is operated upon by the system in conjunction with data cards or magnetic tape files. MADAM is implemented on an IBM 1401 computer with 8,000 characters core storage and four tape units.
