By dbf, do you mean dBase or FoxBase files?  If so, download and install DBD::XBase
at

http://www.perl.com/CPAN-local/modules/by-category/07_Database_Interfaces/XBase/DBD-XBase-0.0632.tar.gz

Note that it will not write indexes (idx files), and it requires that you have the DBD package already installed.  If you have a major problem with either of those conditions, you can use a simpler package from:

Good Luck.
