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

Hi dear Monks, I would like to ask a question about MapInfo files. Is there any posibility to work with MapInfo files from Perl? Do I need any additional software for this? Are there some perl modules that permit to use MapInfo files(.TAB, .MAP and .DAT) without any additional software.

Thank you in advance.

P.S.: I was trying to find descritpion of this files, and to work with them directly from Perl, but i failed.

    Is there any posibility to work with MapInfo files from Perl?

    Yes, they are essentially text files and perl loves text files...

    Do I need any additional software for this?

    Yes

    Are there some perl modules that permit to use MapInfo files(.TAB, .MAP and .DAT) without any additional software.

    As far as I know not as yet, care to write one? see How to make a CPAN Module Distribution. Even with a module you still need to write the code to use it. What do you want to do?

    Try Google and use "mapinfo files perl" as the search or just click here for one I cooked up earlier ;-)

    cheers

      I have some MapInfo files and would like to crate a WebViewer for that files. The project is non commercial and that's why i wouldn't like to spend any money for additional sofware.
