This archive contains the complete set of 1100 Fish Disks plus over 500 additional releases made by Fred Fish. The database contains nearly 5200 records split into three files that easily fit on multiple floppy disks (if so desired); if stored on multiple volumes or on a single hard disk, KingFisher transparently accesses the files as one database. This archive does NOT contain KingFisher itself (the software.) This is the database that you need only download if you have a very old copy or if you are installing a new copy of KingFisher to test and use. The complete set of KingFisher archives on Aminet are listed below: COMPONENT FILES ON AMINET: KingFisher226.lha (297196) All you need to upgrade or install KingFisher. If you are building a new installation you probably want the database, too: KingFisher2db.lha (748224) A database of 1100+ Fish Disks (needed for initial install; when upgrading: remove all old 1000Fish#? files before installing) KingFisher2ex.lha (221558) Extras: example format and ARexx scripts; KingFisher Developer Kit! KINGFISHER 2 FEATURE OVERVIEW: - Client-Server technology provides multiple users (or multiple copies of KingFisher) access to multiple databases, but does not hinder single-user operations, - KingFisher's resizable GadTools interface honors the proportional system font (or any font of your choosing) and can be opened on the default public, and on custom screens, - Search operations can produce Search Sets which may be saved and reloaded, to provide instant access to any previously found record in the database, - Database-specific display, print, and export presentation formats can be defined to produce any desired database presentation, - Hotlinked Product-Info files can be viewed directly; updates to the file are immediately reflected by KingFisher; also view clipboard contents directly, - Powerful search expressions, including embedded support for AmigaDOS regular expressions, are maintained in a history list whose size is user-definable, and each of which can be recalled for re-use at any time, - Ability to reconstruct the index files and construct VersionLinks in release-order to browse related software versions, - Through RexxFisher (the ARexx interface to the server) the user- definable data presentation formats and the same powerful search expressions used by KingFisher are available to any program with an ARexx interface! Registration for this software is $20(US) or DM30. Future upgrades are free (by way of Aminet or ftp.) The developer kit is now available free of charge to registered and unregistered users alike.
