I have accepted an internship that involves re-writing a project written in "Clipper Summer of '87" in C#, and basically it's missing a couple source code files and I have no idea how to work with the database files it uses.
I do know it uses something called "dBase III" whatever outdated tech. that might be...
Basically I'm totally stumped on how to work with the existing files, I intend to re-create the functionality of it by having the people using it (a small business in this case) critique the UI design proposals I will be coding in C#.
The problem is it's just such an outdated monstrosity, being a somewhat young college student, I have no idea how to work with it.
Should I alter my approach to this problem? I'm sort of out of ideas, aside form the UI re-write (the original is console based) and then looking through the available code to figure out what it does.
