    Programmers Database

    I have just created a program called the Programmers Database. It is a simple database program used for keeping source code and code snippets. I found this useful because I would often spend time searching through some old source code files looking for a specific function that I needed to use. This program allows you to keep track of these simply and easily.

    If you guys could try it out that would be very helpful. I want to see if it works on different versions of Windows and how useful you guys think it is. Also, let me know if there is anything worth adding.

    I have included a small sample database called Windows.pdb. It contains some simple Win32 API functions that I often use. I would like to create some other sample databases to include in the zip. If you create some databases that are useful could you attach them to your comments so I can use them as samples. It does not matter what programming language either.

    The Programmers database requires at least Windows 95 to run. I have tested it on Windows 2000, but any other Windows versions you test them on would be helpful.

    Hope you guys enjoy this program.

    Hey sean345, that looks pretty neat, congrats

    If you're looking for suggestions, I'd say it's in need of a search/filter feature and the ability to sort the columns
    When all else fails, read the instructions.
    If you're posting code, use code tags: [code] /* insert code here */ [/code]

    I did something similar for hillbillie, probably about 7 months ago...I think it's up at my ACOS site under the goodies section. It still had bugs, but it worked well enough where I didn't really care

    Wow...the interfaces are very similar.

    Good job, though...

    Thanks. I have been trying to do a find/search function, but I am not sure how to impliment it. I have been trying to figure out how to sort the columns, but so far I have not got it working.

    I'd like to see it in console, so i can run it in MS-DOS. Ayway, very nice proggy, will be used much by me.

    I just went and downloaded that prog and it is a real piece of CRAP! Sorry, but I ran it for about 10 seconds and in that time I got 6.5 trillion error messages and experienced several bugs like dialogs not being able to close, etc. But other than that, its a nice prog
