Subject:How do you illustrate a database? From:Ken d'Albenas <kendal -at- AUTOTROL -dot- CUC -dot- AB -dot- CA> Date:Wed, 1 Dec 1993 12:59:05 MST
How do people depict a database in diagrams? Do you use the
"disk/drum" cartoon? A stack of paper? A file cabinet?
Do you use a different symbol in programmer documentation than in
tutorials and "ordinary human" user guides?
Do you use different symbols for _relational_ database vs. a
general, conceptual database?
