Can someone please clear my doubt about the following specification
“The program must allow the user to specify the location of the database”
Is this means that user should specify the location of the database file db.db.or what it really means.
can somebody please help
thank you

To my understanding, it means user can specify the path and name of the database file. In other words, you can't hardcoding 'db.db' in your program.
