Provides access to XBase (dBase, Fox*) database files through DBI
Module XBase provides access to XBase dBase, Fox* database files, namely dbf, dbt, fpt, ndx, ntx, mdx, idx and cdx. It provides native Perl interface $table->get_record, $table->update_record to read and write the tables. The index support is alpha and read only at the moment.
Module DBDXBase is a DBI driver that uses the XBase module to work with the data, providing you with DBI compliant processing interface and SQL commands $dbh->prepare”SELECT * FROM TABLE”. As an argument to DBI->connect, specify “dbiXBase$dir”, where $dir is the directory with the data files.
