File type specification:
The EDB file extension is associated with the Euphoria a programming language that allows users to programming apps for various platforms, such as Windows, Linux etc.
The .edb file stores database created in Euphoria Database System (EDS).
An EDS database contains 0 or more tables. Each table has a name, and contains 0 or more records. Each record consists of a key part, and a data part. The key can be any Euphoria object - an atom, a sequence, a deeply-nested sequence, whatever. Similarly the data can be any Euphoria object. There are no constraints on the size or structure of the key or data. Within a given table, the keys are all unique. That is, no two records in the same table can have the same key part.
The records of a table are stored in ascending order of key value. An efficient binary search is used when you refer to a record by key. You can also access a record directly, with no search, if you know its current record number within the table. Record numbers are integers from 1 to the length (current number of records) of the table. By incrementing the record number, you can efficiently step through all the records, in order of key. Note however that a record's number can change whenever a new record is inserted, or an existing record is deleted.
