> How would you map g-box, g-snap, and g-text in formal relational DBMS terminology? Such a mapping would help many. Basically, mapping to relations, sets of tuples, and notation.

The SQL spec calls them:

g-box: "site" or "variable" (e.g., a base table is a site that can hold an instance of a table value)

g-snap: "value" (e.g., the state of a base table at any given time is a "table value")

g-text: "SQL-statement", composed of various kinds of "expressions"

Probably doesn't help too much.

Best,
