could n e 1 help me make tghis program?

An information technology department in a college maintains a library of reference books on the following topics:
databases
networks
systems analysis

Each book has a title, one or more authors and is identified by its ISBN. For example,
Databases and Database Systems Concepts and Issues by Elizabeth Oxborrow has ISBN 0-86238-237-8

The department wishes to record details of its reference books in a computer-based system for stock-checking purposes. The system will need to record the number of copies of each reference book the library has. The least significant digit of an ISBN is a check digit. In the example above this is the digit 8 at the extreme right-hand end of the number. The system will need to check that the number entered is a valid ISBN on each occasion that this number is used.

Design a suitable record structure to hold details of each reference book. Limit the author field to the first named author.

The records are stored in a data file on magnetic disk with four records per disk block. The file is referred to as the Book Stock Book data file. A requirement of the system is that it should allow a book record to be accessed when a user specifies a particular ISBN.

Each copy of a book is assigned a unique number called the bookÆs accession number. The librarian will need to be able to find out at any time :
╖ How many copies the Library owns.
╖ How many are in stock.
╖ How many are on loan.

The librarian must also be able to look at a book and change, its loan status on issue or return. The system will be used on several computers, which are not networked. Thus the data must be available in a way that allows it to be moved between the librariansÆ machines as needed. It will not be used on more than one machine at a time. The librarian expects to use windows, a number pad and a mouse for most operations, since her keyboards are often locked away!

How naughty of young Atroxell to imply you want help with your homework!

'tis strange though, how the grammar changes from the likes of "could n e 1 help me make tghis program?" to a beautifly crafted question as one might find on an assignment of some sort.......

Neither do you say why you are doing this Herculean task.
Tell us more.

Ah, the plot thickens. Again.
By the way, which program are you using or have your parents (sic) not specified that?
