    Question Is there a dBase IV (*.dbf) C library?

    Hi there,

    I'm wondering if there is a C library for reading dbf-files. The reason I'm asking this is because the file I have to read (from a c program) is quite big, and searching through a normal file simply takes too much time.
    I know C++ has a library for reading those files (I believe it is called libxbase) but since I'm writing in C, those libaries are useless to me (please correct me if I'm wrong, I haven't got any eperience in combining those two languages).
    If someone can help me, I would appreciate it very much.

    Regards,

    IdunnO
