 Newbie: How do I read a database?


I'm working on a project which extents an excisting delphi program. I don't
have the source code of this program. I need to read from the databases of
this program, but I don't know what kind of database this is. Since I don't
know anything of databases and Delphi I used a program to see what DLL
modules this program uses. I found out it used DBCLIENT.DLL (Borland
Database Engine). The database files are in CDS format, but I think this is
not a correct extension.

My questions:

1. How can I find out which database type this is?
2. Is there a way to edit this database? Or do I need more info on the
structure of these files?

Any help would be appreciated,
