HI

We have very old software running in our Linux system, no one seems to know what type of this language is

The programming files extention are ending with .dcl and open in the notepad,
the sample code is as below

$INCLUDE COLORS.INC,COLORS
BLINK      INIT "[5;37m"
BOFF      INIT "[0m"
STOP      INIT "@"
ESC      INIT " "
.
      CMOVE 27,ESC
      DISPLAY *F,*V1,"TEST YELLOW BLINK"
      DISPLAY *V3,*1,"NORMAL"
      DISPLAY *V5,*1,ESC,BLINK,YLW,*1,"THIS IS BLINKING YELLOW",*1,ESC,BOFF,WHT
      DISPLAY *V7,*1,"AND THIS IS NORMAL AGAIN"
      CHAIN STOP

Can some one guide me what is it, and where can I find the meaning full resources about this

the other types of files are as below
.img
.p

data control language used by DEC over the years.

the database could be Oracle or PostgreSQL,

The most obvious way would to see if you can find a database is do a grep and wild card for db extensions.

The only tools are the db applications themselves.
