File best fit for database?

2 posts in this topic

I'm creating a sort of dictionary program where the user can search for word and get its definition. What type of file (i.e. INI, TXT, ...) would be best for storing the definitions?

Depends on how many records (words) you expect to handle.

Ini files will get slow at about 1000 records. AutoIt does not have native access to binary files. But there are udf's. In VB4 you would have faster access to a btree binary file containing up-to 10k records before the application would benefit from using a access (jet) bd.

If you expect less than 1000 records I would go for a ini solution. Otherwise I would explore the _sqlite* samples in the help file.

Wish you the best of luck..:P
