OAOD (lifelines)

Application: lifelines

What it is:

LifeLines is a genealogy program that runs on UNIX systems in text mode. It
maintains genealogical records (persons, families, sources, events and
others) in a database, and generates reports from those records.

There are no practical limits on the number of records that can be stored in
a LifeLines database, nor on the amounts or kinds of data that can be
kept in the records.

LifeLines does not contain built-in reports. Instead it provides a
programming subsystem that you use to program your own reports and
charts. Some standard report files are included in the
lifelines-reports package.

The programming subsystem also lets you query your databases and
process your data in any way. LifeLines uses the terminal independent
features of UNIX to provide a screen and menu based user interface.

The program is able to read and write GEDCOM files, the de facto
standard for genealogical data exchange.
