Yes, there are two utility programs the come with shapelib (dbfdump and
shpdump) that are comand line utilities (on Windows you have to run them
from a DOS window) dbfdump prints all the attributes from the .dbf file
and shpdump prints the shapefile extents and then all the coordinate
info for every shape in the shape file.
