The SimTel collection has a whole directory devoted to dBASE stuff:
SimTel/msdos/dbase/. The dBASE file format is documented in:
dbasefil.inf A 3818 890816 Chart shows layout of dBASEIII file structure
C libraries (shareware, I think) include:
c2dbase1.zip B 53781 871231 Collection of 'C' utilities for dBase III+
softc103.zip B 82304 900514 C library of dBase/Clipper-compatible routines
A useful (and free) utility is:
dbv123.zip B 44522 940712 DBF database file view/search utility, v1.23
It lets you view dBASE files, reports the header structure, and allows
you to edit the contents of fields.
Finally, a very good (and also free) utility for converting between
dBASE files and other file formats is:
Filename Type Length Date Description
convr501.zip B 80233 950112 Convert dBase, ASCII-delim, fixed, 1-2-3
These are just a few of the dBASE-related files in the SimTel
collection. You can access the SimTel collection via anonymous ftp to
its primary mirror site, oak.oakland.edu.
