Halcyon 6 is an xBase database engine written in Object Pascal for Delphi. It allows the programmer to update DBF files using dBase, Clipper, or FoxPro index (CDX, MDX, NDX, NTX) and memo (DBT and FPT) formats.
Halcyon 6 is purchased as a library of components that allow Halcyon to use the standard Delphi data-aware components through their DataSource property. The components in Halcyon 6 are THalcyonDataset, TCreateHalcyonDataset, and THalcyonNavigator. You may also use the stand-alone database engine through an included interface unit. Used this way it provides a powerful tool for dBase access in console applications, such as CGI and ISAPI for web servers.
