From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (30 December 2018) :

  rdb
  
     A roll-your-own database, created in the Unix toolkit
     philosophy.  It appears to be written in the awk language,
     and is very compatible with awk.  It uses awk's syntax and can
     be combined with awk commands.
  
     The definitive introduction is "Unix Relational Database
     Management: Application Development in the Unix Environment",
     by Rod Manis, Evan Schaeffer, and Robert Jorgensen, published
     by Prentice Hall.  The book tells how to use rdb to create
     database/spreadsheets in the awk tradition, only easier. It's
     a good way to get into programming for novices.  It's also a
     good way to learn DB theory and construction quite painlessly.
