File type specification:

Database file type icon Database file type

The dbf file extension is associated with the xBase, a generic term for all programming languages that derive from the original dBASE (Ashton-Tate) programming language and database formats. These are sometimes informally known as dBASE "clones".

While there was a non-commercial predecessor to the Ashton-Tate product (Vulcan written by Wayne Ratliff), most clones are based on Ashton-Tate's 1986 dBASE III+ release-scripts written in the dBASE III+ dialect are most likely to run on the clones.
