XBase::Memo - Generic support for various memo formats
Used indirectly, via XBase. Users should check its man page.
Objects of this class are created to deal with memo files, currently .dbt, .fpt and .smt (code for this provided by Dirk Tostmann). Package XBase::Memo defines methods read_header to parse that header of the file and set object's structures, write_record and last_record to write the records properly formatted and find the end of file.
There are four separate subpackages in XBase::Memo, dBaseIII, dBaseIV, Fox and Apollo. Memo objects are effectively of one of these types and they override their specific record handling routines where appropriate.
