HELP! Pascal and BTree

Is there some way to read a BTree-databasefile (done with Turbo Pascal 3 or 4 and BTree) with another tool than Pascal?

I need to help a good friend to read an old databasefile and all we know is that the program is in Pascal and it is using BTree. We have only parts of the sourcecode. None of us is specially good in writing Pascalcode. So our hope is to find a program for converting the database file to textfile or ...

Many thanks for your help!

    The files can be read using any language.
    The important part is knowing the file format.
    Most programs use static record length so tipically
    you should be able to get an idea of the record
    size by knowing number of records.
    Why don't you post the code you have (even incomplete)?
