[REBOL] Why I need DBF

From: rebolek:seznam:cz at: 2-Nov-2001 11:16

Hello, someone asked why I need DBF? So: 1. We (me and Cyphre) were writing internet shop engine for someone last year. It included to read data from their accounting software and publish them on web. The accounting software could save only in its own format, DBF and maybe XLS (not sure). So I've started writing DBF reader. But the client was paying very bad (actually he never gave us any money) so we stopped develoment. 2. Friend of mine wrote some statistic software for the swimming contents years ago (1992? 1993?) in FoxPro or something like that. All results are saved in DBF format. Two or three years are the results available thru web but by creating pages he needs to save results in CSV and then use REBOL to make HTML. With DBF reader he can contvert results directly. 3. I'm updating webpages for someone who's got his data in DBF. He wants me to finish it quickly so I prefer to use finished DBF reader than finishing my own . So simply: DBF2HTML.r :)
