Well my first shot would be something like a mediawiki software which is
connected say to a mysql server. I can search wiki, but then most likely
I could move files in a directory and run grep.

So what about some functionally openoffice or filemaker (a commercial
software which runs on Mac or on Windows) provide. You write data in a
table and then can run searches which produce new (smaller tables).

Now I don't understand what you mean be joined, linked?

Yeah that looks a bit to hackerish to me.

That is maybe more what I need, could that be used in tables?
