Saving and retrieving from a VFP database

P: n/a
Hi,

I would like to know if it is possible to save my data from C++ into a
Visual FoxPro database and then later also retrieve information from it. Is
it possible and if it possible how can it be done. I would prefer to save it
in a Visual FoxPro database, because I know VFP well, but I can live with an
Access database.

Also does anyone know if it is worth maybe migrating to vb.net as I heard
that it is the database programming language of the future. My only concern
is that vb.net may not be very fast compared to C++.

TIA
Roy

It is possible, but you will need either a third-party library for
handling Visual FoxPro file format, or you need to know exactly what
each byte in such a file means.

Standard C++ does not have the capability to decode any file format
other than plain text.
