I am a new programer for C++. I want to merge two or more dbf file together. I don't know how to read the dbf file and out put a dbf format file.

Ex: there are two or more dbf files. all of them have same structure "LABID","LOCATION" and "CALL" and all of the fields are character.
The file name is SNP1.dbf and RS2300.dbf.
I want:
1. link the two file togethear by LABID,
2. drop location
3. rename the "CALL" to "SNP1" at SNP1.dbf
4. rename the "CALL" to "RS2300" at RS2300.dbf
5. output a dbf format data set with: LABID, SNP1 and RS2300.

I hope the program can handle more than two dbf files and easy to be used at dos command line, like: "merge *.dbf output.dbf"
Is there a way to do that?

Thanks a lot

then learn how the .dbf file is encoded use filestreams to read and ouptut them through ur decipher and recipher functions and there ya go

The wise make mistakes, the fools repeat them
When you have eliminated the impossible, that which remains, however improbable, must be the truth
