DBF files, and how to I get them imported into MySQL - MySQL

I have some database files with a DBF extension. Does anyone here know what DB product may have produced them, so I can get the right ODBC and JDBC drivers, and ultimately import them into MySQL? Alas, the data I was after was available only in this format or in plain text files. Thanks, Ted -- R.E. (Ted) Byers, Ph.D., Ed.D.

    I'd guess probably XBase, though this DBF file extension is used widely
    be different products. Examples are dBase III/IV/V, Foxbase, Foxpro,
    dBfast, DataBoss, Oracle 8.x tablespace file, etc.

    If you can load the file onto a UNIX/Linux system and use the "file"
    command, it may be able to identifiy it.
