Starts the main program ARB_NT which also includes the database server.
The database server is memory based. That means:
All changes are only temporary until the database is saved.
The database is a single file which can be copied, deleted, renamed ...
The database file should have the suffix '.arb'.
Sends a signal (HANGUP) to ARB_NT to force saving the database in ASCII mode. Because arb_panic bypasses any running operation of ARB_NT,
THE SAVED DATABASE MAY CONTAIN INCONSISTENT DATA.
It interactively asked for file name and whether it should kill arb after saving.
'arb_2_ascii filename [dest_filename]'
Converts any ARB database to ASCII format.
Also tries to recover corrupt files (if dest_filename is skipped). Backup first!!!
