   Generate Database Browse Code Utility

   Quickly provides documentation for a Database
dbDocumentor reads your databases and Index files and provides a printable text file.

Generates a text file in the database directory, with the same name as the Database with a .dbd extension.

   DOS Error Code text lookup
Due to a significant number of questions on what a particular DOS error code means, I wrote this little utility that will help the Xbase++ Programmer quickly look up any particular error code.

It is a very simple utility that allows for an input of a numeric value, the Error code, and queries the O/S, via the DOSErrorMessage() Function and reports back the text for the Error Code.

Or you can use the online version located here.

Title: MaxField
Version: 1.1
Author: Michael McVicker
Date: 08/27/2001
   Determines maximum size used for database Fields
When performing Data Import or Export (EDI), knowing the Minimum or Maximum length of any or all fields is helpful.

By using this utility, excess space can be eliminated from databases if it is found that a Field is declared with a greater Size than is actually required.

Drag & Drop Enabled. Simply drag a database and drop it on the .exe. It will load it and report it.

Title: Sec2Time
Version: 1.0

   Converts Seconds() to Time()
Quick little utility that takes the results of Seconds() and converts it back to a readable time. Born out of looking at Debug Log files where Start, End and Elapsed Time was being logged, I needed a way to look at the actual time.

With this utility, you can copy and paste the Seconds from a log file and see the time.
