[PLUG-TALK] Perl Question

   I found a one-line script to convert .dbf files to .csv:

<http://avi.alkalay.net/2010/08/convert-dbf-to-csv-on-linux-with-perl-and-xbase.html>

dbfdump.pl --fs "," mytable.dbf > mytable.csv

   The author writes that the dbftools comes with DBD::Xbase. I just
installed the Xbase module but cannot find dbfdump.pl or dbftools.pl. My
Google searches also turn up nothing.

   What am I missing and where do I find it?

Rich
