This project is principally focused on having a basic PHP implementation of Aborior's Simplex to be able to retrieve data and migrate them to a real RDBMS.
2 PEAR-compatible packages will come out of this project: a DB_Simplex database "engine" and a MDB2_Driver_simplex package for MDB2 integration, especially with MDB2_Schema.
Aborior's Simplex is a flat-file based database written in Perl. There seems to have a whole CMS or at least DMS included as well. However, since Simplex is defunct, this project focuses on facilitating data migration to other system.
