I have written a small program for dBASE which uses the data in a
dBASE table and produces an ASCII file in PEDRAW format. Naturally the
dBASE table must have the data in the appropriately-named fields.
I believe that Foxpro uses code similar to dBASE and also the same
.dbf file structure.
Although the program was not intended for distribution, I can make
it available if there is any interest. The code will need a bit of
modification for each particular disease that is being tracked, since the
fill symbols required (all black for affected, quarter black for ingrowing
toenails etc.) will vary from disease to disease.
