CREATE — Create new databank

This program is used to create a new databank and to write capacity records that contain default values where necessary. The databank is organized as one single file that holds speech parameters, spectra, as well as psychopathology score. The standard configuration allows one to store up 20,000 case records. The databank organozation can be either "direct" or "indirect". In the latter case all databank modifications are on a databank copy rather than on the original data. The modifications can be made "permanent" through an explicit call of program SAVE.

            ------------------------------
            I4 NREC                  20000  Default-value
            I4 LG22                     22  Default-value
            I4 LG23                     23  Default-value
 
            01 NREC Number of records/subjects (physical size of databank)
            02 LG22 Logical unit number of databank (vox_parms.dbnew)
            03 LG23 Logical unit number of databank (vox_spect.dbnew)
            04 TYPE Type of databank
            05 DEMO Examples that illustrate program function
 
            - NREC:     Number of records to be stored in databank.
                        Standard=20000 which provides space for 19989 cases
 
            - LG22:     Logical unit number of databank (vox_parms.dbnew)
                        valid numbers are 22-24
 
            - LG23:     Logical unit number of databank (vox_spect.dbnew)
                        valid numbers are 22-24
 
 
            - DEMO: Create new databank with standard settings

Fig. 01: The sensitivity of the human ear depends on frequency with pronounced non-linear characteristics. The highest sensitivity lies in the interval between 1 kHz and 5 kHz. By contrast, computerized approaches to quantifying the nonverbal component of human speech rely on a "flat" frequency response curve that enables cross-comparisons between subjects.
