This software program, Personal Pearl, released in 1982 by Pearlsoft, a division of Relational Database International Systems, Inc. of Salem, Oregon, was distributed as "approved software" with Osborne computers. The binder contains the user's guide, reference card, update sheet, and seven 5.25" diskettes.
Personal Pearl was a database and report generation program for computers running the CP/M operating system. It was an easy to use menu-driven program for designing data entry forms and reports. One notable feature was the ability to identify common fields in multiple databases so that data updated in one database was updated in all databases. The software came with ready to use databases for appointment calendar, contact information directory, mailing list, and accounting journals.
