I think there are several modules to read DBF files, but is there no way to
access the Oracle DB directly? You could then simply use DBI to query from
Oracle and insert into Mysql. A 10-line script would more than suffice for
doing this. In fact, there is even DBIx::Copy that will automate parts of
this for you.
