       glom — database designer and user interface




       This manual page documents briefly the glom command.

       This  manual  page  was written for the Ubuntu distribution because the
       original program does not have a manual page.

       With glom you  can  design  table  definitions  and  the  relationships
       between  them,  plus arrange the fields on the screen. You can edit and
       search the data in those tables, and specify field values in  terms  of
       other fields. It’s as easy as it should be.

       The  design is loosely based on FileMaker Pro, with the added advantage
       of separation between interface and data. Its simple  framework  should
       be  enough  to implement most database applications. Without Glom these
       systems normally consist of lots of repetitive, unmaintainable code.


       These programs follow the usual GNU  command  line  syntax,  with  long
       options  starting  with  two  dashes  (‘-’).   A  summary of options is
       included below.

       -?           --help
                 Show summary of options.

       -V           --version
                 Show version of program.

       -f           --file
                 Filename of the glom project to open.

                 Show the generated SQL queries on stdout, for debugging.
