This module allows reading and writing .dbf and .dbt files. At present
time the generic interface should work, giving methods like
get_record, get_record_as_hash, set_record, update_record_hash. The
record is always accessed using record number (0 .. last_record).

Man page and README are included.

The interface of XBase works for me but if there is a need, it can
change/develop futher. Please let me know. The DBD::XBase is not
ready yet. If you find any bugs, let me know and I'll try to fix

Relation to Xbase-1.07: I have been using this module by Pratap
Pereira for reading .dbf files for quite a time and started to make
patches for errors I've found. I wanted other people to have chance to
make use of them. But the author doesn't seem to support the module
anymore, so I decided to write my own module. It doesn't use any code
from Xbase-1.07, is (tries to be) use strict clean and current
advantage is that it also writes .dbf and .dbt. The methods however
are not compatible with Xbase-1.07. Since the module names differ you
can use both modules for some time if you decide to convert to this.

Hope it'll be of some use for you.


                   I can take or leave it if I please
