Yep, my legacy code ;-)

I've a /cgi-bin/dbase script written last year when the other library
seemed OK. It shouldn't need too much reworking to move over to the new
interface, but I won't be able to do this immediately. I'd really like to
move to 6.3 first so I can take advantage of the improved ODBC support. 

I want to hack a whois++ interface to PostgreSQL at some point soon, and
will be using the standard perl5 library for that.

cheers,

Dan
