record number in URLyBird 1.2.1
posted 10 years ago
I'm starting development of my assignment which is URLyBird 1.2.1. It mentions recNo(record numbers) as a sort of primary key to the data file. Can this value just be generated by a unique sequence of rows of data in the file(other than header rows)? Or is it supposed to represent the actual offset from the beginning of the file to a particular record? I could see both values being calculated at application startup, but which is more valid?
