ActiveState has been unable to support the DB_File module for quite a long time

Supporting DB_File is trivial, ActiveState chooses not to support it

    To all of the concerns, Active State is moving very fast towards business. Many of the important modules that you got initially are no longer available for free, Ex: DBD-MySQL Win32::GUI The stable versions like 5.10 do not provide many of these modules. You need a business edition and it costs $1000. Your very notion of Opensource is compromised.

      You appear to be mis-informed... having a problem with orthography or spreading FUD about ActiveState.

      If I've misconstrued your question or the logic needed to answer it, I offer my apologies to all those electrons which were inconvenienced by the creation of this post.
