The primary objective of a directory is to organize information for efficient retrieval. There are many techniques that can be applied to the design of a directory. One particularly useful technique employs the use of inverted files on range attributes. The technique provides an effective directory for a variety of applications and for very large databases. This paper examines the technique and describes the implementation of a general design tool based on these principles.
