Cedarville University maintains an FTP site of programs which run under the Unidata/Universe database management system. (Unidata/Universe are database products from Rocket Software.)

Most of the programs on the site are generic to Unidata/Universe. The programs include utilities like CEDARVILLE DOWNLOAD, HISTOGRAM, CROSS.TAB, and several routines for creating multi-value handling i-descriptors. To browse through these programs, click on the link below. To actually fetch the programs, you will have better success if you use a regular FTP (file transfer protocol) program like WS_FTP (in Windows) or ftp (in Unix/Linux). You may login using the name "anonymous". For a password, please enter your e-mail address.

CEDARVILLE DOWNLOAD is a utility program which produces output files in ASCII, mail-merge, HTML, XML, or DIF formats. Output files can be used by service bureaus and government agencies or used directly by standard software packages. CEDARVILLE DOWNLOAD is easy to use, because it uses syntax like the LIST statement that is native to Unidata/Universe.

There is an email "list serv" specifically for people who use CEDARVILLE DOWNLOAD within their organization. To subscribe, visit:

We also have routines which are specific to the higher-education package "Colleague" from Datatel, Inc. To access these programs, you will need to obtain a username and password from the Datatel User Group or the info-datatel list.

Questions or comments about the ftp site should be directed to Dr. David Rotman, Chief Information Officer.
