If you have dBase III or later, Clipper or FoxPro, you can export the
data comma-separated, then use a free csv-to-mysql utility eg
http://sourceforge.net/projects/csv-mysql/ to get it into mysql.
If you don't have an xbase executable, it's a little harder, but not
much provided there's no memo file. A dbase data file is an ASCII file
with a binary header. You can read the header in any file viewer,
observe the header size, and find the field names & lengths. The data is
entirely ASCII, padded to exact col lengths, thus simple to parse with
a perl or php script.
If there's a memo file, you need an xbase executable.
