Exporting or converting RDF files
Posted by: Neil Allen Bristow (ID *****2845) Date: March 29, 2008 at 13:56:39

One of the best features of the old PAF 2.3.1 was the simple, easy-to-use Research Data Filer (RDF) program, a bare-bones DOS application that functioned as handy electronic 3x5 cards, great for taking research notes. Unfortunately I can't get it to run properly with MS Vista; it can't find or create files. So I'm left with 3.5 MB of data in 246 files, gathered over more than a dozen years of research, that I really can't use.
What I would like to do is to export the data in my RDF files to a format (csv or tab) that I could then import to database or spreadsheet programs. I don't know in what language it (RDF) was written, perhaps C+ or a related one.
Any ideas?
