DB3ed v1.30 - A dBASE3 File Editor - Copyright (c) Harvey Parisien
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
This program is a test program I use to test my dBASE III file
routines. It's pretty handy as a simple dBASE editor/browser
so feel free to use it.

DB3ED is dBASE III and dBASE III Plus compatible. It creates dBASE III Plus
format files, but can manage both types (there is a 1 byte diff in the header
file length - for more info write). If you copy file structure to a new one
it will retain it's current format. By listing the structure you can see the
current files format.

USE: DB filename (NOTE: If no filename is given, then you are prompted to
choose from a list of files on the current directory)

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
DB.EXE produces a color attribute file called DB.COL. It contains 6
values....

7,1,0,3,7,0

Value 1 is: Main foreground
Value 2 is: Main background
Value 3 is: Browse foreground
Value 4 is: Browse background
Value 5 is: Browse cursor foreground
Value 6 is: Browse cursor background

You can edit them to suit your own tastes, or use the built in color selection
utility.

This is the HELP screen which lists all of the commands...

  1. Very nice! Thank you for this wonderful archive. I wonder why I found it only now. Long live the BBS file archives!

  2. This is so awesome! 😀 I’d be cool if you could download an entire archive of this at once, though.

  3. But one thing that puzzles me is the “mtswslnkmcjklsdlsbdmMICROSOFT” string. There is an article about it here. It is definitely worth a read: http://www.os2museum.com/wp/mtswslnk/
