Bubble Sort is a simple menu-driven database which stores, and displays long lists of information.

File length depends upon the amount of free Ram but each record must be shorter than 26 characters. Each time you enter a snippet of information it is sorted and positioned in the file using an alpha-numeric bubble sort. If you make an error the program will delete an entry but you need to know the key number of that item.

Files can be listed on screen, dumped to a ZX or Alphacom printer, or stored on cassette. They can also be date stamped, so you know when they were last up-dated.

Bubble Sort is a simple but effective alternative to a shopping list. You cannot, however, create, record or display formats so its uses are limited.

A dull but functional database. Record length is unnecessarily restricted. Very disappointing.
