dbase_open opens a dBase database with the given access mode.
This function is affected by open_basedir.
The path of the database. It can be a relative or absolute path to the file where dBase will store your data.
An integer which correspond to those for the open() system call (Typically 0 means read-only, 1 means write-only, and 2 means read and write).
You can't open a dBase file in write-only mode as the function will fail to read the headers information and thus you can't use 1 as mode.
As of dbase 7.0.0 you can use DBASE_RDONLY and DBASE_RDWR, respectively, to specify the mode.
Returns a database resource on success, or false on failure.
|dbase 7.0.0||The return value is now a resource instead of an int.|
