NAMEglom --- database designer and user interface
This manual page documents briefly the glom command.
This manual page was written for the Ubuntu distribution
because the original program does not have a manual page.
With glom you can design table
definitions and the relationships between them, plus arrange the
fields on the screen. You can edit and search the data in those
tables, and specify field values in terms of other fields. It's as
easy as it should be.
The design is loosely based on FileMaker Pro, with the added advantage
of separation between interface and data. Its simple framework should
be enough to implement most database applications. Without Glom these
systems normally consist of lots of repetitive, unmaintainable code.
These programs follow the usual GNU command line syntax, with long options starting with two dashes (`-'). A summary of options is included below.
- -? --help
- Show summary of options.
- -V --version
- Show version of program.
- -f --file
- Filename of the glom project to open.
- Show the generated SQL queries on stdout, for debugging.
- X display to use
