Thread Version 5 extensions

Now we know that version 5 will be called ElevateDB, none of the "What
File Extensions Do You Think Are Right for DBISAM Version 5 Files ?" vote
extensions seem appropriate.

I suggest instead that
..EVD
..EVI
..EVB

or some variation with .EV at the start would be better.

I know, but that doesn't stop it being changed! 8-)

That's the poll I'm talking about. (Okay, I used "vote"). But I just went
to the site, saw the poll, and thought how inappropriate the extensions
were now we know the name. That's all.

Wow, this topic is really popular. Smiley Needless to say, the extensions will
be as short and descriptive as possible. Wink

How about being the first to go super-simple Smile

..D
..I
..B

or

..T   (The data)
..I   (Index)   
..M   (Memo/blob}

I must have too much time on my hands or too many cumulative
beers on the brain,

I like it, but to be consistent shouldn't you have a D for data?

Roy,

The second was just a stretch to spell the author's name. I
wouldn't want to imply that he was of less than average
intelligence Wink
