Access Query Language overview

AQL uses TCL commands and displays the results either on terminals or printers. AQL operates on specified files and items based on various optional criteria, specifications, modifiers, limiters, and options.

FlashBASIC calls from dictionaries are used for complex data calculations and output formatting.

The use of B-tree indexes increases the speed and performance of AQL.

AQL sentences are entered at TCL and can be recalled, modified, or executed through the use of the tcl-stack. AQL sentences can also be stored and invoked through macros, menus, Procs, and FlashBASIC (using the execute statement).
