I found this:

"Man pages for XBase, DBD::XBase, dbfdump, XBase::Index and XBase::SDBM 
are included, examples of little scripts can also be found in eg/ 
directory of the distribution. Read the DBI man page for DBI specific 
issues, and the XBase::FAQ page."

on this site: http://www.adelton.com/perl/DBD-XBase/

Can you man dbfdump?
