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

Has anyone written/seen a module for browsing Mapinfo TAB files.
I want load the files, parse then and grab the data into a proper database, but before I reinvent the wheel, wondered if anyone had already done this.

    I've not seen anything dedicated to Mapinfo files, however, before you knock up a 21st century hover device in the garden shed, look at the Persistent::Base Class of objects on CPAN.

    In particular the Persistent::File class will allow you to query delimited text files, and you can then transfer your data to another class. So in effect query data from the Mapinfo file and save it to your SQL database or what ever. Hope this helps.
