Filemaker Pro on the Mac side doesn't have either an odbc or DBD driver, but you can use Chris Nandor's Mac::Glue
to script Filemaker via Apple Events. You can find it on CPAN or at http://sourceforge.net/projects/mac-glue/
. I've seen examples that use Filemaker on some of the MacPerl mailing lists. You might want to check the archives
for example code.
Update: I cranked up my Powerbook and looked at the Mac::Glue distribution and an example for extracting FileMaker data is included.
