Un naufragio personal

Ángel Ortega


Dbfrep is a repairing tool for DBF databases (those used in dBase III/IV and Clipper).

It tests the following:

  • Signature validity.
  • That the header length field in the header matches the real length.
  • That the number of records field in the header matches the real number of records.
  • That the delete mark is a valid character.
  • That the strings does not contain ASCII values lower than 32.

This piece of software saved my databases from several hard disk crashes. It could be compiled using Turbo C.
