Code the record as an object (class) and place instances of those objects inside
a list or dictionary (depending on access required).  Or if you don't want to do
much with the records just put each instance of a record (normally a record is
implemented as a tuple at least thats how SQL databases return rows) inside a
list or a dictionary (again depending on access required).
