Program For Reading Foxpro DBF


I need to read the Foxpro .DBF files in Linux. Just for reading and observing their content and structure. Is there any application which can do the job?

Note: Those files are the DOS based Foxpro. Not visual Foxpro.

Thanks in advance

Is this what you're looking for?

DBF Viewer
A quick search on the web turned it up. You should try it sometime.

I don't think they changed the file format, so these are actualle old dBase 3 files.

Try dbview.

Also, you can open them in LibreOffice Calc.

You can also convert them to mysql with dbf2mysql or Postgresql with pgdbf.
