    "manage" and "organize" could mean roughly the same thing, but manage might refer more to changing a set of values, where as organize might mean sorting them.

    "maintain" could refer to either of the above, but it would never refer to entering data the first time, only to managing or organizing it later on (whereas manage and organize could both refer to initializing a new set of customer information).
    C programming resources:
    GNU C Function and Macro Index -- glibc reference manual
    The C Book -- nice online learner guide
    Current ISO draft standard
    CCAN -- new CPAN like open source library repository
    3 (different) GNU debugger tutorials: #1 -- #2 -- #3
    cpwiki -- our wiki on sourceforge

    Manage means you take the credit for someone else's work.
    Maintain means you do the work.
    Organize means you tell the people to do the work, but someone else gets credit.
    Until you can build a working general purpose reprogrammable computer out of basic components from radio shack, you are not fit to call yourself a programmer in my presence. This is cwhizard, signing off.
