A little history

PMF (Poor Man's Flight) is a comfortable and rather powerful editor/visualizer for the tables of a DB2 Database. With DB2 v.2 IBM shipped a very useful program called "(Visualizer) Flight", which (among other things) allowed DB2 users to view and change the contents of tables.

In 1998 I started to write my own "Flight" from scratch for Linux. With TrollTech releasing a non-commercial edition of their library, I was able to port the Linux version to Windows and provide PMF as Free Software.

So, whether you are a database administrator or a software-developer or just curious to take a look into your database without view-blocking heavy interfaces, you might find PMF useful.
