in reply to Is there a perl module for parsing Microsoft SQL .MDF files?

I've been looking at this recently as well (not out of joy) and found no other sane method than to use a Windows (virtual) machine with SQL Server Express (assuming you have no MSSQL box). After that, the already mentioned DBD::ODBC can be used to query the server.

I do have to say it's not a great solution, but at least you can export the data into something more cross-platform ;-)
