Using a persistent system to construct a customised interface to an ecological db.

  New applications of information technology have increasingly sophisticated user interface requirements. Such interfaces are sometimes highly application specific and therefore require to be customised to the given application area. Technology is required to support the construction of such highly non-generic interfaces. We describe how by using the persistent programming language Napier88 and the associated windowing system WIN it has been possible to construct by modest effort an interface tailored to the requirements of an ecological database.
