Migrating .foc files from AIX to Intel Linux

Has anyone come up with a quick and easy way to migrate a focus datasource (.foc file) from AIX to Intel Linux? By quick and simple I mean other than TABLE and holding in ALPHA format on AIX, then ftp to Linux box followed by MODIFY on the Linux box to reload.

If you have Binary numbers in your Focus file
like Floating or Double precision then the
format for Aix and Intel Linux are different and
you can't take a REBUILD DUMP from one platform and use a REBUILD LOAD on another.

I have tried the rebuild dump on AIX and a rebuild load on Intel Linux with a database that contains only alpha and integer data, still no success. The Intel Linux box can't seem to properly read the rebuild.ftm that is copied over from the AIX box. Is there something I could be doing wrong?

My guess is that the control information in the
Dump cannot be interpreted by Intel Linux because
of a difference in binary format between the two architectures.
The solution is to do an Alpha HOLD on the source file and a MODIFY to input to the target file.
