It is a great Data base management system easy to work with. Can be customised easily.

A dBase III clone application with added features and DOS windowing capability

dBase II compatible MSDOS program with built in manual. Even in year 2008, I find it very useful to do add hoc database manipulations.
There is a patch available which will enable you to make it year 2000+ compatible.

I still have the complete manual, floppies...even the box...and yes, I still run the programs I wrote on a DOS operating system. I never managed to obtain Quicksilver...by the time I got that far it was unobtainable in SA. I am currently trying to rewrite my simple applications in other way...and it is a nightmare...twenty years have not seen much improvement in similar applications. Just look at the size of the program...a laughable 654K!! Which is much better than the cr@p I am struggling with at the moment.

A dBASE III clone - possibly better than dBASE! They also made QuickSilver - a compiler for dBXL

I still have clients running on programs I wrote in 1988 using dBXL and the compiler QuickSilver.
Yes, these clients are running DOS computers! Heck, they will never get a virus! LOL

Found a copy of it... some quotes from the manual:
dbXL is "The NEW dBASE III Plus" compatible database management system featuring ease of use, windowing, and an extended language.
It was designed to run on PC-DOS and 100% IBM compatible MS-DOS machines with at least two (floppy) disk drives and 512K bytes of RAM, and DOS 2.0 or better.

I agree with JMW. DBXL was and is a better product than Access. (And I am very skilled with Access.) It is too bad that such excellent languages like DBXL are thrown away so that companies can sell new products, and in the process keep everyone illiterate “speaking” different languages from each other and limiting the talent that could enter a business and keep it running.

Visual dBase wasn't really a head to head competitor with Access, Paradox was. Borland owned both Paradox and Visual dBase at one point in time, and dBase was competitive mostly against [Visual] FoxPro and Clipper/CA-Visual Objects.

It was competitor to foxbase, clipper and Dbase. It was the best rapid app developer of its time. Most of the things vb 8 does with visual db explorer is native in dbxl smaller and faster. It lacked the windows front end.
It was purchased by The owners of Dbase
and integrated in to db4 compiler which visual db which was killed by access and windows even thou it was and still is a better product.

It was a DBase clone - some people thought it was actualy better.
