Developer / company: SIR
The built in database manager lets you create and maintain your data safely and securely. The central description of your database automatically validates all data thus maintaining data integrity. You can set various levels of password protection for sensitive data. With a comprehensive set of utilities to copy, subset, merge, backup and restore, you can really protect your valuable data. If concurrent updating by multiple users is required, this is coordinated by a single Master process.
SIR is intended for people who need to build real applications and includes the tools to help you do this without the complications of C/C++ and Windows specific code. Procedural Query Language or PQL is a powerful and versitile fourth generation language which is fully integrated with the database. PQL is simple to learn yet follows full programming logic for the most complex applications. Building a custom Windows interface with your own menus and dialogues is simply a matter of creating a script and letting SIR do the work.
Reporting and Analysis
SIR comes with a full set of tools to extract and analyse your data including two report generators, one for simple reports and the other for complex, custom reports. There is a full cross tabulation system plus interfaces to many popular statistical systems for further statistical analysis.
SQL is part of the system with a menu system to help you build queries quickly and easily.
Full documentation is provided on-line in an extensive cross linked hypertext set of files which are the equivalent of over 1000 pages of manuals.
If data is worth collecting, it is worth keeping and inevitably over time that means new hardware and software platforms. SIR has been providing data management tools for twenty years and we have built portability into the system. If you build a SIR application on one platform, you can move it all - data, applications, menus, reports - to any other SIR platform. SIR gives you compatibility from old to new (e.g. from DOS to Windows) and across current systems (e.g. from Windows to unix and vice versa).
SIR works with the following file extensions:
Note: You can click on any file extension link from the list below, to view its detailed information. The list of extensions used or otherwise associated with the application may not be complete, because many common file extensions on our website, such as jpg (pictures) or txt (text files), can be opened by a large number of applications, or are too general file format. However most, if not all directly associated file extensions should be listed with its appropriate program. Although its likely, that some file extensions may be missing from the list of associated file extensions with the application, yet they can be opened, be part of, or otherwise be associated with the program.
