 Return current alias name

     DBF() --> cAlias


     DBF() returns the alias of the current work area as a character string.
     If there is no active database file in the current work area, DBF()
     returns a null string ("").


     DBF() is a compatibility function that replicates the DBF() function in
     dBASE III PLUS.  CA-Clipper implements it by invoking the ALIAS()
     function without an argument.

     DBF() is a compatibility function and, therefore, no longer recommended.
     It is superseded entirely by the ALIAS() function.

 Files   Library is EXTEND.LIB, source file is SOURCE\SAMPLE\DBF.PRG
