Oh boy. I just inherited a bag full of DOS disks with data on
them in the format of a program called 'Data Manager PC.' My
guess is that it's an old flat-file database of some sort. The program
appears to be lost, but I hear (about third-hand) that the person who
did the data entry got Data Manager PC 'for about $30 at Sears.'
Quite some time ago....
Now, this isn't a life or death situation. (We'll, actually it *is*:
this is some geneological stuff in which I have mild interest, so
life and death is definitely there. But no one's life or death *hinges*
on whether I can read it, if you know what I mean.) But I thought
I'd ask if anyone knows about 'Data Manager PC,' whether it has
a current incarnation, whether it's a known format that can be
read by other db systems, etc.
No reason I can't search remainder bins and the like, but I thought
I'd inquire first. Appreciate any help people can provide.
