Each FairCom DB function has two names: the full name and the abbreviated name. Full names are used throughout this manual, and describe the action the function performs. The abbreviated name is generally shorter and more cryptic. You will see it if you examine the FairCom DB source code. Prior versions of the c‑tree File Handler used the abbreviated names. If you have a program that worked with older versions of c‑tree, you will not have to change the function calls to the full names. Also included in the table is the function’s API group and a table of API groups.
