This package is a read/write wrapper around xbase (dbf/foxpro) flat file databases that does not use any PHP extensions specific for that purpose.

It provides several classes to abstract the access to flat file database tables, records and columns.

Sometimes flat file databases are more convenient to use because they do not require a database server to be accessed.

Usually they are also much faster to access because they do not require the use of SQL or any query language that imposes overhead to parse before executing the queries.

PHP has several extensions to access flat file databases. However, such extensions may not be available in the PHP version that is installed with some Web servers.

This class provides a pure PHP based solution that makes it possible to access dbase flat file databases, thus without the need for any specific extensions.
