The Shapefile format is a working and interchange format promoted by
ESRI for simple vector data with attributes. It is apparently the only
file format that can be edited in ARCView 2/3, and can also be exported
and imported in ArcGis.
This package contains a useful set of tools to manage shapefiles.
