Abstract:

The COMRADE Data Management System CDMS is a generalized data base management system that has been developed as an independently useful part of the Computer-Aided Design Environment COMRADE System. CDMS consists of two distinct components a set of host language subroutines which enable CDMS functions to be embedded within FORTRAN Extended and COBOL application programs and a set of conversational programs which enable a user seated at a keyboardprinter or display terminal to define, load, update, and query a CDMS data base, to issue a variety of file management commands, and to access a number of auxiliary capabilties. This report provides an overview of CDMS, and describes the procedural steps involved in the use of the CDMS conversational interface. CDMS operates on the DTNSRDC Control Data 6700 computer. Author
