Dear Duane,    (01)

I can fill in one gap from Leo's response.    (02)

PLIB is not a language. The name is short for Parts Library (ISO 13584). It
is designed to hold specifications of parts of similar design where the part
is the intersection of particular properties. Probably too restrictive for
what you are trying to do.    (03)

You have also left off your list entity relationship modelling tools, like
UML (which does much more than just entity-relationship modelling).    (04)

Regards    (05)
