📌 The basic definition of the .BTR file format corresponds to the database entry generated and opened by Btrieve, a powerful transactional database package targeted for speed aims. Accurately, the noted extension algorithm includes a collection of records stored and opened in the Btrieve database shape. In practice, the following .BTR file specification is generally exploited for storing and retrieving data content as well as generating and composing unique reports with custom patterns and layouts. Essentially, the .BTR data elements are distinguished by internal availability of an associated set of DDF data definition entries which comprehensively describe the database structure and hierarchy.
📌 The .BTR file nodes can be successfully extracted, opened up, monitored, and analyzed by a minor range of extinct, obsolete utilities, such as Btrieve Database Manager, BTRIEVE Viewer, and PSQL Maintenance Utility. All of the noted distributives are remaining in ceased development state and cannot be downloaded on the official basement from the developer’s online web-pages.
