Hmmm, this was most certainly originally written by me, with (according to 
the README) later updates from Frank Koormann (fkoorman(at)usf(dot)uni-osnabrueck(dot)de) (dbf.c). Not to be picky, but listing Ivan as the (only) author doesn't 
sound right to me. Some of the files have funny CVS history entries, i.e. 
references to WAL locking code?!?

I've also got a version on my own systems that *appears* to be newer, 
supposedly with bug fixes and added features. I'll have to verify that 

btw. there's a listing of my email address in dbf.h that doesn't exist 
anymore. Can somebody update it to read maarten(dot)boekhold(at)reuters(dot)com?
