Programming Challenge – Richard King

The challenge was to write a generalized program which would read a 5000 line csv file and enable the user to query the data. The example file provided by Richard is here. Half a dozen of us rose to the challenge, which required homework! An interesting exercise which revealed a range of approaches, from Noel Lodges use of Open Office – required no work! to Roger’s object database (of course!).
