Hi all,
I am asking this question on several VFP forums but the answer seems to be very difficult...
VFP lists FoxBase DBF file with 0xFB signature in the help (
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa975386(VS.71).aspx). I suppose this is the old FoxBase (16 bit version 1 or Mac version probably) and I would like to find such DBF file sample or its structure description at least.

Does anybody of you have the old FoxBase or some DBF created in this version available?
Even the older dBase II file format is described at several places (and VFP 9 allows to open it but the header info is not properly decoded), FoxBase DBF is simply nowhere...
I am not interested in FoxBase+ DBF structure - this is known and compatible to dBase III.

I may be able to help you with that - I've used FP since it came out in '88. What do you need? What are you trying to do?
