I've been presented with the data files from two different custom-written
DOS programs. Both of 'em were written before 1990. I don't know what kind
of data files these are - they have the file extension .dat. I don't see a
list of field names at the beginning of the files. They appear to be
straight data. I can read the alpha fields but it _appears_ that the date
and number fields are in binary.
Does anyone know of a utility that will identify the file format of a data
file? If I just knew what the format was, it would be a terrific help!
Very truly yours,
