From BitBucket: "Kit Roed has a project on BitBucket where he has created a Visual FoxPro binary-to-text source parser (note this isn't a decompiler). It's basically just like SCCTextX, but it's written in C# .Net. Since VFP stores a great deal of its source code inside dBase-style .dbf tables, it is impossible to read without VFP installed. This tool can generate ascii files from the scx/vcx/frx/mnx/pjx files that can be read with a text editor, or can be used as version file in source control systems."
