The DBFTools are a set of modules that allow you to create, read,
write, and work with dBase compatible database (DBF) and index (NDX)
files from TopSpeed Modula-2. Procedures are provided to OpenDBF,
CloseDBF, GetRec, PutRec, GetField, PutField, OpenNDX, CloseNDX,
Next, Prev, Find, BOF, EOF, etc. You can also build indices
substantially faster than dBase can.

The DBFTools provide full multi-user support so your database programs
can run on any network or multi-user O.S. without concern of damage to
your data or index files.

Versions for other Modula-2 compilers will be released shortly.

I have provided these files as shareware at a minimal price with the
hope that providing inexpensive easy to access tools for Modula-2
will help the language become more popular in the United States.
You may use these tools for 30 days free of charge. Thereafter, the
purchase price is $10 for students, $30 for individual programmers,
and $50 for the ability to use the tools in a commercial application.

Payments should be sent to:

David Albert
10800 Georgia Avenue
Wheaton, MD 20902
(301) 949-1505

If you have any questions, comments, or suggestions regarding these
modules, please leave me email on the Topspeed BBS. Complements and
suggestions are gladly complaints or nasty letters please!

  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:
