Convert XBase / FoxPro tables to PostgreSQL
PgDBF is a program for converting XBase databases - particularly FoxPro tables with memo files - into a format that PostgreSQL can directly import. It’s a compact C project with no dependencies other than standard Unix libraries. While the project is relatively tiny and simple, it’s also heavily optimized via profiling - routine benchmark were many times faster than with other Open Source programs. In fact, even on slower systems, conversions are typically limited by hard drive speed.
