    And DBD::CSV? That counts as a real database right?


    Hello? Can anyone hear me?

    Michael, who sulks into the corner

      Well, I'm using it for a project at home. But that's because I am learning Tk and DBI at the same time, and performance is not an issue here, so I didn't want to deal with learning MySQL as well.

      I guess a lot of it depends on what you're using it for. At work we have SQL 7, Oracle, and Sybase databases. Not to mention lots of Excel spreadsheets doing stuff that should be put into databases!


      Imagine a really clever .sig here.

[erix]: Look what I found! :P
[Corion]: Hmm - actually, I don't need them, even though they'd be nice. I just want the (say) 10 latest images, and that's easily done with a limit 10 offset 0 clause, as I don't need all top 10 images for all users.
[Corion]: erix: Sure, but this is for a really-lightweight application and I'm replacing a CSV file / JSON file for user configuration with SQLite (and optionally, Pg) :)
[erix]: isn't a texty format handier for configs?
[Corion]: So far, I've avoided having even a user database by storing the user information in a (signed) cookie that the browser keeps for me, but as I want to be able to lock users, I need a second storage option :)
[Corion]: erix: It's needed for keeping the list of users and the list of tags associated with an image, and for keeping the images with users. I want an easy way to know if an image can be deleted, which means that it can't be referenced by any tag anymore. ...
[Corion]: SQL feels like a natural choice here :)
