  1. This is basically two functions (plus supporting infrastructure): _Xbase_ReadToArray($filename, Byref $array, [...]) _Xbase_WriteFromArray($filename, Byref $array, [...]) that transfer all data from one container to the other. Various optional formatting parameters are detailed in the Remarks section of the script; a small test script plus dbf test file (the latter from the (free) Harbour distribution, see here) are provided for your entertainment. Note that the $array variable has to exist already, as it's parsed ByRef, but it does not have to have the correct dimensions. This is pure AutoIt (no SQL, no ADO, no dlls, no external dependencies). The Xbase specification was gleaned from here. There is no support (either currently or planned) for a GUI, or additional functionality; it's just a simple data interface I needed for my MatrixFileConverter for Eigen4Autoit (link in signature), that might be of use to others (see MatrixFileConverter.au3 for an implementation example). One thing to keep in mind is AutoIt's array size limitation (16 MB elements); Xbase files can be considerably larger. On the other hand, AutoIt arrays are less restricted in their number of columns than (certain versions of) Xbase (see script for details). Appropriate error messages will inform you when you've hit these buffers. Xbase.v0.8.7z third beta release
