Its a database,i know, it is used in one of applications that i have.
if i open it in Notepad+++ i see this in Dat file
this in DIA file
and this in IND file
I cant see in the file what is this, it is delphi application, maybe that will help.
those letters are the first letters in the files.
the aim is store once, not store multiple times

You have to read more than the first few characters.
The dat file probably starts with a label record of some kind that contains the name of the software that created the file; the release number; maybe the serial number.
If it is a database file the label record is probably followed by the record structure data, and after this, if indexes are included in the same file, they are next, and finally the data itself.
The data itself may be fixed field length, or null terminated fields, it could also use some kind of data compression.
Ok, but i need to know what database is it to be able to open it in some data editor.
I don't want to edit it in HEX or BIN mode, but in gooed editor.
I asked google of course it is the first person to ask .
