Conversion methods

Using CURL

Let's imagine we want to convert the Visual FoxPro 9.0 sample DBF files provided by Microsoft. The database directory contains the database container files (northwind.dbc, northwind.dct, northwind.dcx) and a number of table files. For example the table categories has the files categories.dbf, categories.cdx and categories.fpt, while the table customers has only the files customers.dbf and customers.cdx. In any case, we have to upload the database container files. In addition to that, we also have to upload the files of the tables that we want to convert. Let's assume we only want to convert the categories table, the command would look like this:

curl -F files[]=@northwind.dbc -F files[]=@northwind.dct -F files[]=@northwind.dcx -F files[]=@categories.dbf -F files[]=@categories.cdx -F files[]=@categories.fpt '' -o
The file will contain a Excel file, one for each table in the set of input files. If something went wrong, contains the error message.

How long does it take?

The conversion process takes between 15 seconds and multiple minutes. It depends on the size of the database.
