parser has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Hello fellow Monks,

After a few hours of reading on CPAN and few few (mis)trials with various modules I am reduced to making inquiry - which is the superior module for reading DBF files?

I have come into posession of a few very large DBF files and I need to accurately read and munge the contents. I have no need to read indices nor to write to DBF files. The ability to query for field name and type is valuable as is at least rudimentary error handling.

Cheers
