F/OSS flat-file database

Leemeng writes "I'm looking for a simple, free and preferably OSS flat-file database program.

Basically, I'm just storing info about Wifi APs that I come across. Maybe 8-9 fields per entry. I've since outgrown Notepad, and figured this info should be stored in a database. This info is for my own reference only; it is not going on a web server.

Googling was unhelpful, with results skewed towards SQL, Access (MS), and Oracle, all of which would be overkill for my purposes.

My criteria is, it must be simple, F/OSS, must work in Windows Vista, preferably use a portable format, must _not_ be an online app, and does not require Java.

Does such a beast exist?"

Sorry! There are no comments related to the filter you selected.

Free, tight, and tested... but perhaps overkill! (1)

SQLite is often used in very simple applications. (Some very much more complex ones as well, but it can have a very small footprint.) Just because it has ability, doesn't mean you need to use all of it. Trade complexity for size. Give it another look.
