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

[Corion]: Meh. I need to find myself a better "programming" feed than r/programming (which is just HackerNews reposts and advertisements, very little code). Maybe I should select a list of links that I liked on r/programming and then google for ...
[Corion]: ... an aggregator site that also listed (ideally) all of these links once. And maybe also have an exclude list to blacklist some of the most spammy links that the site may have never mentioned at all
[marto]: I gave up reading HN at all, and feel much better for it :P
[Corion]: Now, how to best automate that Google search ... :-)
[Corion]: marto: Yeah, I'm also short of not reading it at all. I already stopped reading it in the morning because it gave me a foul mood.
[Corion]: The good posts on HN are the non-computing posts. Most of the other stuff is maybe relevant to you if you are 20 and live in Silicon Valley...
[Corion]: Two attributes that don't describe me.
[Corion]: Maybe I should also write a curator for HN or simply not read it anymore, like you do.
