simple Document Database System (sDDS)

The goal of this projects was to provide a simple way in which to manage my references.  Something that was a little more flexible than a spreadsheet, but not as complicated and bloated as one of the commercial reference managers such as EndNote.  The solution I used was to simple use a spread program to create a CSV text file with various fields such as Author, Keywords etc. for the bibliographic entries.  A chemical structure database was also created in a similar fashion.  Searching through this file was then accomplished either using a CGI perl script to create a web interface, or a Java program for running on the desktop.  The search programs also create links to any PDF and structure files I have for those entries.
