   Much closer now ... but not yet there.

   Running dbfdump.PL seems to produce another executable called dbfdump.
When I run that I see:

[rshepard at salmo ~/grassdata]$ ./dbfdump --fs "|" towns.dbf > towns.csv
Can't locate XBase.pm in @INC (@INC contains:
/usr/lib/perl5/5.10.1/i486-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/5.10.1
/usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.10.1 /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl
/usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.10.1 /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl .) at ./dbfdump
line 4.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at ./dbfdump line 4.

   The perl module is located in both

   How do I let dbfdump know the location of XBase.pm?

Many thanks,
