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
