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
