in thread Which xBase module?

I endorse DBD::Xbase. I've had it in production until a year ago when we finally abandoned the legacy FoxPro database we still had to read from.

DBD::Xbase also comes with a handy little program, dbfdump.

    I found the nugget that is dbfdump in the XBase.pm module. It is called get_header_info and is perfect for what I am doing.

    Thanks to all for the great thoughts and advice!

    Cheers

[thezip]: It seemed so, choroba, but I don't want to confuse anyone (especially myself!)
[choroba]: thezip unless something like this happens to you.
[thezip]: I don't intend on doing any offline development in the Czech Republic soon, so i think I'm safe!
[thezip]: :-)
