MZFriends Home Page


MZFriends is a very, very rudimentary database program, made to be a personal address book, but it can save what you want (e.g. the books in a library, the customers of your shop...). Very basic, simple, small and fast. I's available for Linux (and other Unix-like systems) and Windows (9x, ME, NT, 2000, XP or higher).

Linux versions: 1.3.0 and 1.2.2

IMPORTANT: versions 1.2.0 and 1.2.1 had a serious bug, that involved data loss in the Windows version (and undefined behaviour under Linux/Unix).
Please upgrade to 1.3.0 or 1.2.2.

If you want to import your data from the old Windows version (1.0.x and 1.1.x) to the new version, you must translate carriage return/line feeds (Windows text format) to line feeds (Unix text format). Some text editors do that. You can also use other Linux utilities, as mcopy....
