FileMan is an extension of VA FileMan,
produced for Medsphere
Systems Corporation by George Timson, who was
the original programmer of VA FileMan.
MSC FileMan includes all of the functionality of VA
FileMan, and is designed to be backwards-compatible
with any database created within VA FileMan.
Indian Health Service (IHS) and DSS mods to VA FileMan are also included here.
MSC FileMan incorporates many bug-fixes to VA FileMan, and adds significant new capabilities, including
an 'internationalized' data dictionary, and a mouse-enabled ScreenMan. The "readme.txt"
file details several other enhancements.

available as open-source software, under a GNU LGPL license that
