Summary:
In 1981, Dr, Martin K. Solomon and Carl D. Kirshen published the paper, "PEIRCE: A Relational DBMS for Small Systems," that utilized Codd's relational algebra as a basis for this interactive database management system. Looking back, it is easy to see that PEIRCE was ahead of its time in many ways, especially by showing an early understanding of the relationship of triggers and virtual files, and recognizing the need for a user interface, known as the Clerk Oriented Interface. An historical overview of PEIRCE will be given, along with a comparison of PEIRCE to the ever popular state-of-the-art ORACLE relational database management system, as well as an explanation of my new extensions to the subsystems of the PEIRCE DBMS. The historical overview is useful because it covers the evolution of PEIRCE over a period of more than 15 years, and collects the previously disjoint information into one place. Also, this overview is interesting because it reflects the change in database and computer technology over that time.
