I don't know a lot about dBase III DBT files, and I want to see it's content. The DBT version is 0, is the file broken?

The output from the file command is the following:

dbt_file.dbt: dBase III DBT, version number 0, next free block index 3759263696, 1st item "\354\245\301"

How can I see this file contents?


I too got this message trying to open an ISO file which was created in a proprietary format (UDF). In this case, the information about this file being a dBase file is wrong. You can open and extract the image with ISOBuster (which is Windows-only, but it also works via wine).
