DESCRIPTION ^

One or more files specified on the command line (or from standard input if none specified, or - is specified) are converted from dBASE DBF format to text delimited files. Delimiters and escape characters can be indicated on the command line. Output is typically written to <file>.txt, given input <file>.dbf. The output extension can be changed with the --outext parameter. Alternatively, an output file can be manually specified via the -o argument. If --outfile is -, output will be written to standard output.

If --info is specified, header metadata is printed to standard output for all specified DBF files. All other flags are ignored and no row data are output.
