Structured Data Objects
(Chapter 6 in the text).

Up to this point in time, we have been restricted to dealing with Abstract data types that "contains a fixed number of contiguous storage elements all of the same data type".

Without them, we would NOT have any databases (Structured Data Objects may be considered as records within a database)
