Projects / jdb


JDB is package of commands for manipulating flat ASCII databases from shell scripts. It is useful to process medium amounts of data (with very little data, you'd do it by hand; with megabytes, you might want a real database). It is very good at doing things like managing data for research experiments. By storing data in simple text files and processing it with pipelines, it is easy to experiment (in the shell) and look at the output.
