Currently project, creating C++ software to allow user defined data files (number of records, record size, record structure, and key size) that contains a binary tree sturcture as part of the data file. The existence of the binary tree should allow for the quick retrival of data by the user for viewing or exporting. The data files will be maintanable by the user having the capability to add, delete, and modify records. I have extensive experience developing and implementing engineering application software using primarily Fortran/Unix and C/C++. Using a structured design methodology, I have developed functional specification, system specification and program specification for various user groups, working with a variety of programming languages and software packages. I seek a position with an energetic, growth oriented company which will utilize the expertise I have developed in my 30 years as an Information Systems professional and thereby contribute to the succes of that company.
