Depends.

If it’s a dBase file, then use http://github.com/infused/dbf
If it’s a Mimer DB, then it’s not possible :frowning:

i haved solved this problem myself
1、to get schema in ubuntu console:
[email protected]:~$ dbf -a /home/pt/test/sh.dbf
2、to get csv file in ubuntu console:
dbf -c /home/pt/test/sh.dbf
there is a file named /home/pt/sh.csv
everything is ok.

hai ,everyone
i have installed dbf,
gem install dbf
require ‘dbf’
table = DBF::Table.new("/home/pt/test/sh.dbf")

/home/pt/test/sh.dbf is my dbf file.

table.each do |record|
puts record
end
there is the output
