Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Btrieve is a database developed by Pervasive. The architecture of Btrieve has been designed with record management in mind. This means that Btrieve only deals with the underlying record creation, data retrieval, record updating and data deletion primitives. Together with the MicroKernel Database Engine it uses ISAM, Indexed Sequential Access Method, as its underlying storage mechanism. Btrieve is essentially a database that uses keys and indexes to organise data. However, the file structure itself is largely built around smaller units of data, called "pages" in the Btrieve world. Though the structure has changed over the various versions of Btrieve, the file structure still revolves around a File Control Record (FCR) - which defines the configuration of pages - and pages in the Btrieve file that contain data.
