I'm interested in the content of various DBF headers. Can someone give me a xBase++, Harbour and Visual Foxpro created dbf ? A single field - e.g. N, 5, 0 - without any content is enough.
IMHO FoxPro has different headers, and they depend on the version.
And they have different fieldtypes that the Clipper/VO world does not recognize.
I don't have samples anymore, but to read VFP databases I could not use the DBFCDX RDD, but had to use a self written binary reader.
I have attached this code here (really old - I have dismissed it inthe year 2005)
The reason why i´ve started this thread: I only want to know/see how Harbour, xBase++ or VFP store e.g. the current year ( 2018 ) in the second byte. Is it 18 ( 0x12 ) as VO and even foxpro 2.0 does, or not.
BTW. VOs default SetEpoch() setting is 1910 ... time to move it
