PECL DBASE type 'I' filed support
by Alter (alterX@alter.org.ua (remove X))
I'm using dbase module v5.1.0 for PHP.
I met the following problem with some .DBF files:
PHP Warning: dbase_open(): unable to open database xxx.dbf in /var/tmp
Google gives a lot of reports like "really, doesn't work sometimes" but without definite solution or explanation.
Appeared, my .DBF contained binary numeric field (type 'I').
Usually, type 'N' with plain-text number represenation is used.
The patch proposed adds support for type 'I' fields and PHP warning for unknown field types.
All patches are sent to development team.
