You certainly can. Almost all DBMS's have some sort of command-line utility and many of them are even powerfule enough to generate reports, HTML pages and even XML.

For the PostgreSQL DBMS, the basic command-line tool is "psql". For MySQL, it's "mysql". For Oracle, it's "sqlplus". I forget what DB2 uses.

For SQL Server, the command line tool is iSql, but of course, you have to be running a Windows client in order to use it. Microsoft lives in their own little world.
