The RFX Summary Database System contains the most important experimental data, and provides tools to collect and insert the data and to interactively study their dependence. It was developed to allow a fast search for shots with given characteristics for follow-up, detailed shot analysis, and study of the scaling laws of the RFX plasmas. The database uses the Rdb/VMS relational database and is accessed using Structured Query Language syntax. A program automatically inserts the most important data for each shot while the users can access the database with their own programs using high-level routines. An Interactive Data Language interface to the database allows the users to interactively insert and extract data from the database, combine, or modify the data as they want, plot and fit the extracted or computed data, and perform general multiple regression analysis. © 1995 American Institute of Physics.
