Converting Windows cardfile.exe files to HTML
This small tool lets you convert data "hijacked" in a windows cardfile.exe file into usable HTML.
Some Windows users use the simplistic cardfile.exe "database" to organize their data.
The .CRD files are in a proprietary format and cardfile has no export features. I suggest against using the limited Cardfile for any data.
The following program reads a binary .CRD file and prints the contents out as HTML, one list item per card. From the HTML it is easy to convert the data into anything you may need.
This has been tested with a "large" 1100-entry 100kbyte cardfile database.
If the tool detects any problem, it will display an "assert" error. The .CRD file may be corrupt, try transferring it again in binary mode. If the problem persists, contact us by e-mail.
Note: A different, probably newer, version of cardfile.exe exists, which supports e.g. embedding images within the cards. This tool does not currently support cardfile files from that version of cardfile.exe.
Thanks: The DOS version was compiled with a free old version of Turbo C from Borland's museum (!) web site (and it is PC-free, it was compiled on a Mac running VirtualPC).
