Does anyone know any commands in syabse that convert/export Sybase output
as .dbf(dbase file) format?

We need this because we are evaluating a tool called "ACL" that imports
data from various file formats to manipulate on its own
environment.However,we noticed that it parses .dbf files much better than
other file types.Since our backend is in Sybase and we need to find out a
way to convert Sybase output to .dbf output.

Any help would be highly appreciated.

Thanks
Pannu

I don't know of any commands to perform such a conversion, though
PowerBuilder can export to .dbf files and could be used to create an
application to perform this task (or one could do this interactively in
the IDE).
