DAD (Distributed Adamo Database is an extension to Adamo, an entity relationship database library developed at Cern.
Dad's main purpose is to make Adamo data available between different processes and different machines on the network. It's data exchange format can however be used to write and read from sequential files at a much higher i/o rate than the generic Adamo ZEBRA i/o drivers.
This document shall enable you as a user of Dad - namely a C or F77 programmer - to use the dad library functions for writing Dad servers and Dad clients. It will also show you a subset of Adamo functions, that will be useful for writing normal clients.
There is also an easy to use tcl interface to Adamo and Dad named PinK. Look up the reason for this name and the documentation to this very useful tool here.
