This document describes the basics of the underlying GRAMPS database. This is not intended to be a reference manual, but an introductory programmer's guide to using the GRAMPS database access routines. If you are a looking for documentation on how to use the GRAMPS system as a user instead of as a program developer, it can be found on the [
http: //gramps-project.org/index.php?module=pagemaster&PAGE_user_op=view_page&PAGE_id=7 GRAMPS documentation web page]. Separate [http://www.gramps-project.org/api3/ API Reference Documentation (Last Updated:2007-06-07 for version 3? of GRAMPS (Not sure) )] is available (Note that you should click in the right-hand-corner of this website, on the ''show private'' link to really see how the API works!).
GRAMPS is written in the [http://www.python.org Python] language. A basic familiarity with Python is required before the database objects can be effectively used. If you are new to Python, you may wish to check out the [http://docs.python.org/tut/tut.html Python tutorial].
