        What is the Neornithes ?

by Alberto Masi
--NEORNITHES: nomina avium 
               EXPLAINED BY IMAGES-

A search instrument of our Informatics Ages: a data-base with a single, built-in program designed properly for this feature which allows to quickly view lots of information about birds, with several search keys.
NEORNITHES tries to be helpful for those which don't have access to a huge, specialized library, because it grants a quick and comprehensive search system over a database of 38,000 schedules with fundamentals of the formal taxonomic hierarcy... and much more.

The first and only computer-based system with all known and living birds' names in Italian language.

User Record-Inserting
If you reinstall the CD-ROM, the existing database will be replaced with the original one. User-added schedules will be lost, of course, and the same will happen to changes made by the user in existing schedules.
-                             ---    SECURITY BACKUPS -
It is advisable to make regular security backups of your own data, copying somewhere else (or with a different name) the following files:
 C:\AVM\N0.DBF -
 C:\AVM\N0.MDX 
---
 This just because the program has the capability to add and edit data.
 In fact the NEORNITHES,  for the peculiarity of the subject it deals with, allows you to add new schedules or
 edit (and even delete!) the existing ones.
