You need to configure an ODBC DSN that accesses the foxpro database. Assume
the DSN is called foxy.

Then download from http://php.weblogs.com/adodb the library.

Sample code:
  include('adodb.inc.php'); include('tohtml.inc.php');
  $conn = &ADONewConnection('vfp');
  $rs = $conn->Execute('select * from table');
  rs2html($rs); /* recordset to html table */

PS: This only works on Windows.
