Expand description

The data structures for representing the file/database.

An FDB file is layed out as a hash map. The top level is a list of tables, lexically ordered by their name (all uppercase names before all lowercase ones).

Each table consists of an array of Buckets, where each bucket Corresponds to one hash value of the primary column.

Each bucket consists of a list of rows. These rows may be sorted in ascending order of primary keys, but that is not fully verified.

Each row contains a vector of fields, with a data type and respective data.

Each Table has a list of columns with the names and default data Types corresponding to the layout of each row.
