This research is an implementation of the data definition facility for the Graphics Language for Database (GLAD). GLAD is a graphics-oriented database management system which is primarily concerned with ease of learning and efficiency of use. The system uses an object-relationship approach to data base design. Entities of the database are represented graphically as objects. With this method, users can visualize the schema of the database and can quickly comprehend how the entities relate. Every effort has been made to design GLAD so that a new user can quickly learn to create and manipulate a database without the need of a dedicated database administrator. Theses. (aw)
