    Since Mac OS and OS X never have been command line based I don't think you'll find anything like that.

    Your best bet would just to run DBase in VirtualBox, VMware Fusion, Parallels, or under WINE/Crossover.

    Well, OS X is Unix based, so there should be plenty of Unix programs that would meet your needs.

    For a start, perhaps look at DB Forums. You can find discussions about the software as well as recommendations.
