in reply to getting data from a Microsoft Access DB (.mdb file)

DBD::ODBC has worked for me in the past. That's from a windows box, but I don't think the module is platform specific, however you will need a driver. Some links to potential drivers for linux are provided in the documentation in the link above.

    The ODBC driver, in this case, needs only to work on the machine where the script will run. DBD::ODBC will work perfectly for this.

    I somehow missed "From the Linux side" in the root node, making the redacted text entirely redundant. My bad.
