    KirbyBase is a small, plain-text, dbms written in Python or Ruby. It
    can be used either embedded or client/server.

    You can find more information on KirbyBase at:
    http://www.netpromi.com/kirbybase.html

    You can download KirbyBase for Ruby at:
    http://www.netpromi.com/files/KirbyBase_Ruby_1.6.zip

    Changes in Version 1.6:

    * On numeric comparisons, you can now specify negative numbers.
    * Fixed a bug where program would crash if you had a space between the
    comparison operator and the number in numeric comparisons in select
    statement.
    * You can select all records by specifying that you want to match
    'recno' against '*'.
    * Approximately 60% speed imporvement by checking if a string needs to
    be encoded/unencoded first instead of just encoding/unencoding all
    strings.
    * Approximately 20% speed improvement by changing the internal
    representation of field types from strings to symbols.
    * This only applies to the Python version. Added a compatibility layer
    for declaring field types when creating a table. If you use the new
    compatible field types when creating a table, you can use the table
    either from the Python or Ruby version of KirbyBase without having to
    change anything.
    * Changed the record-counter and deleted-records-counter in the
    header record of the table to be zero padded instead of spaces
    padded.
