Mini SQL 2.0 Reference


Mini SQL, or mSQL, is a lightweight database engine designed to provide fast access to stored data with low memory requirements. As its name implies, mSQL offers a subset of SQL as its query interface.

Mini SQL Version 2 is the second generation of the Mini SQL product. mSQL 1.0 has been available in various forms since June 1994 and has undergone many enhancements to become a very popular and stable database system for small databases. mSQL 2 goes beyond the initial design goals of mSQL 1 and provides functionality suited to larger applications. It does this without reducing its performance on the simple tasks that mSQL 1 handled so well. The result being a lightweight database system suited to most data storage requirements.
