6.2.1.2 Base Tables
— Operation on base-table: make-table lldb key-dimension column-types

Returns the ordinal base-id for a new base table, otherwise returns #f. The base table can then be opened using (open-table lldb base-id). The positive integer key-dimension is the number of keys composed to make a primary-key for this table. The list of symbols column-types describes the types of each column.

— Operation on base-table: open-table lldb base-id key-dimension column-types

Returns a handle for an existing base table in the low-level database lldb if that table exists and can be opened in the mode indicated by mutable, otherwise returns #f.

As with make-table, the positive integer key-dimension is the number of keys composed to make a primary-key for this table. The list of symbols column-types describes the types of each column.

— Operation on base-table: kill-table lldb base-id key-dimension column-types

Returns #t if the base table associated with base-id was removed from the low level database lldb, and #f otherwise.

— Operation on base-table: catalog-id

A constant base-id ordinal suitable for passing as a parameter to open-table. catalog-id will be used as the base table for the system catalog.
