[Shapelib] dbf file for shapefile

Seems to me I was told that it was an "xBase" file.

I also think that I have used dBase IV format to work with these files in MS 

If I am mistaken, I am sure that I'll be corrected shortly;>)

There is a utility (set) that I think is part of the demos in the 
distribution that will create a dbf from the command line, create fields, 
and populate them.  This has been a handy tool for me once I got it 
compiled, as I don't use c, c++, c# or c^2.  I just create a batch file and 
let the OS worry about it.
