I'm still using Cardfile (under the theory that if it's stupid but it works, it's not stupid), and I don't think there's any way to export Cardfile information from there to some other program. The problem is that a Cardfile entry isn't at all delimited; it's totally free-form.

You can open a .crd file as text, but there's a lot of extraneous junk; I suspect it'd be simpler to just copy and paste from Cardfile to the other program.
