IRT (``Information Retrieval Tool'') gives the user access to some of
the important information about transactions and components, as stored
in the EPOSDB . IRT has a command line interface, and gives text output
(this will be extended to a GUI). The component or transaction on
which information is requested, is identified by its name by the user.
IRT can give information about a component itself, its relationships, or who uses it. It can also give information about a given transaction, or list a transaction hierarchy.
