dbfdump - dumps the content of a xBase file to the terminal
dbfdump [-h] [-r] [-m] xbase_file
Dumps the contents of xbase_file to standard output. The first line contains the field
names appearing in xbase_file, and each of the following lines contains the field values
of a record. Field names and values are padded by spaces to their field widths. Empty
fields are printed as the string "(NULL)".
-h output header info (field descriptions).
Prints the column field definitions before other output. Each field definition
consists of a line of the form
Field: index, Type=type, Title=`name´, Width=width, Decimals=precision
where index is the zero offset column number of the field; the type indicates the
datatype of the field value and is either "Integer", "Real" or "String"; name is
the field´s name; width is the number of bytes reserved for the field´s value; and
precision is the number of decimal places of precision for "Real" type fields, and
is zero for "Integer" and "String" type fields.
-r output raw field info, numeric values not reformatted.
Prints the exact bytes occurring in xbase_file for field values and suppresses
printing "(NULL)" for empty values.
-m output one line per field.
Prints each record in multiline format separated by empty lines. The first line of
a record gives the number of the record in the form
where record_index is the zero offset number of the record in the file, and then
each field of the record appears on its own line in the format
the name of an existing xBase file.
dbfdump -h testbase.dbf
assuming that testbase.dbf has 1 record (inserted by other example using dbfadd), this
command line will produce the following output:
Field 0: Type=String, Title=´NAME´, Width=20, Decimals=0
Field 1: Type=Double, Title=´AREA´, Width=9, Decimals=3
Field 2: Type=Double, Title=´VALUE´, Width=9, Decimals=2
NAME AREA VALUE REGION1 25.656 150.22
0 Successful program execution.
1 Missing xbase_file argument.
2 Failed to open xbase_file.
3 There are no fields in xbase_file.
The following diagnostics may be issued on stdout:
There are no fields in this table!
