Experiencing the following problem:
Using dbase_get_record() or dbase_get_record_with_names() on some files makes php.exe crash.
Running php-4.3.3-Win32.
You can find the DBF-file at
These files are generated by a radio automation software (tried to generate a new one: same result), I have no influence on the structure of the files but need to read them.

Thanks for any help!

Reproduce code:
$db_path = "DRSMain.DBF";
$dbh = dbase_open($db_path,0);
$rowcount = dbase_numrecords ($dbh);
    for ($i=1; $i <= $rowcount; $i++) {
          $row = dbase_get_record_with_names($dbh,$i);
          echo $row[ARTIST];

Expected result:
Script should write contents of the ARTIST-field in every database row.

Actual result:
php.exe crashes (no output), apache shows error 500 (internal server error)

It looks like your database is in dbase IV format.
The first 32 bytes are idenitical to dbase III but the
fields specification seems to be different.
Actually it doesn't look right for a dbase IV file but
I haven't seen to many and could wrong.
Do you have more information about the expected table
