This paper discusses the design, implementation and usefulness of a system for the flexible creation, accessing, and reformatting of list structured data bases in ANSI FORTRAN programs. The system is portrayed as being a useful tool in building prototype systems where frequent design modifications are expected and which, for reasons such as portability, are to be written in FORTRAN.
