well you could have an array that read the data from file into some structure you have created then to manipulate the data you just perform operations on the data structure array. Once you have finished write it all back to the file.

To add to your database add a new element to the array that is holding th orginal data from the file.
To edit the data just change the values your structure elemets are holding.
To search just loop through your array.
and to delete..well it depend on your strcutre

If you can be more specific I may be able to help more
