Dbfdump prints to standard output the content of dbf files listed. By default, it prints all fields, separated by colons, one record on a line. The output record and column separators can be changed by switches on the command line. You can also ask only for some fields to be printed.

The content of associated memo files (dbf, fpt) is printed for memo fields, unless you use the --nomemo option.

You can specify reading the standard input by putting dash (-) instead of file name.
