k im doing a binary record file program, mine happens to be the inventory of a warehouse, here are the features/ commands/ what ever you call them so far :
store info
search for record
change record
delete record
display information by manufacturers, catergory, and items on sale
and quit (ovious one)
anyone have any suggestions on something more i can do with this progra, some extra or something don't know if this will help
type inventory :
        product : string (10)   %the product's name
        manufacturer : string (10) %The company that made product
        price : real        %the products price%real
        number : int        %the number of products in the warehouse%int
        reorder : int %the number which to order more; unsafe number%int
        numinstock : int   %the number that should be kept in stock %int
        prodnumber : string (8)   %the products id number  %string
        cater : string (10) %what the product catergories as
        sale : string (3)   %is it on sale or not, cheaper price
    end record

also if you'd like to view my mostly completed working file just let me know and i'll post it on here, could be used as a reference for others

no, its that that it looks compleat already... the only thing I can think of that you can add is sorting results. Such as when you search for items and it returns multiple results, they are displayed in order (price, name, whatever)

question is - why not just use already created database Confused
