I have been trying to figure out the way to get dbase functions working with xampp installed on my linux machine. (1.7.3)

phpinfo shows dabase has been enabled but when try to call any dbase functions, it simply throws undefined function error.

I even tried to add extension=dbase.so in the php.ini file but that too did not help, as it started throwing errors upon lampp restart.

Can anyone guide me on how to fix this issue?
