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.
