Notes from my attempts to RE myobs file format
Header, 0x80/0x800 long?
first record starts at 0x800
NOT alligned (some things are 2 byte aligned)
From the upgrade guide:
0 - no record header
10 - variable length record header
18 - superfile record header
22 - resource record header
0xFAFA 'Active Data Record'
0xFDFD 'Deleted Data Record'
0xFEFE 'Resource Record'
"""
NON_SUPER (0) - not a superfile
HST_SUPER (1) - superfile host
MBR_SUPER (2) - superfile member
IDX_SUPER (6) - superfile directory member
DATA_FILE (0)- data file
INDX_FILE (1)- index file
VDAT_FILE (2)- variable length data file
"""

len is the number of bytes following the header
string keys are 'compressed', prefixed by a signed byte which is the
negation of the number of bytes, and the byte before that is an offset
within some buffer
