FlashFiler to RDBMS Data Converter

Transformer_Flux.svgOur work at a Oasis Digital often includes migrating legacy code or data into a new system. We often find off-the-shelf tools, or create ad hoc single use tools to assist that process, but occasionally something reusable emerges.

We recently needed to convert a lot of data from a legacy FlashFiler database (an Turbo Pascal then Delphi specific database from the 1990s) to something more modern. We took the opportunity to make a tool for this purpose outside of any specific customer project, so we are able to release it for anyone to use. It looks like this:

ffrdbms4

We have released this data converter as open source software. You can download it, or learn more, on its page on GitHub.
