Description from the author: 
"The VIPER Database Engine(TM) is a portable, scaleable database engine 
written entirely in the C-Language. Its modular structure makes it easily 
portable to other operating systems (next OS is Linux!). An MS/PCDOS 
version currently exists. It uses an ISAM/B+tree implementation for 
databased services. 
The VIPER Database Engine(TM) for OS/2 is a 32-bit native code database 
engine for the IBM OS/2 operating system (OS/2 version 2.0 and above). It 
contains C-Language and REXX APIs. This preview release is in preparation 
for the VIPER Database Engine (version 1.0.0) general release. API 
documentation for the PREVIEW RELEASE 0.9.X is available for the REXX API 
only! (sorry, C-Language API will be available soon). 
VERSION SPECIFIC INFORMATION 
This version of the VIPER Database Engine is primarily for evaluation and 
testing.  It is the first OS/2 port and as such may have some bugs. The 
purpose of circulating this PREVIEW RELEASE is to detect and eliminate any 
bugs or software defects through user feedback."
