the Data class doesn't seems to support null values

is it preferrrable to support it. i would check if newData[i]
is null, then i will use a carriage feed "\n". reason
being that "\n" cannot be feeded by the user as inmput.
though i need to make sure it retrieves it properly
in getRecord() and find(). i wont say that it is a
whole lot of work considering "null" is such a
fundamental part of the database.
please advice!!!

Do you have null values in your db.db? There shouldn't be.
Also there are some databases out there that also don't support null, and I don't recall having to deal with this in my assignment, so I guess you could say "Don't worry about it"

yes , you are correct

but i believe all RDBMS should support null value ?? ok i dont want to downcast the Data into RDBMS from DBMS.
thanks for your thoughts Mark

My view consists of nice snowscape at the moment, which is rather rare for England Other than that, there is nothing I have to add to Mark's reply. The objective is not to produce an RDBMS.
