I have stuck with MySQL primarily because I'm used to it. I started with mSQL, which lacks some vital features, so when I found MySQL I thought it was great. For simple databases, MySQL is easy to use and learn. Postgres has more advanced features that compete with the "big boys", but I've never needed them for the kind of work I do. I considered switching once, in case of future need, but I didn't like the way Postgresql handled things like OIDs and stuff as opposed to MySQL. I'm sure if I had started out with Postgres I'd swear by it instead.

[Lady_Aleena]: Renaming things like get_THAC0 to just THAC0 was easy. These are harder.
[james28909]: consolidate the three subs into one
[Lady_Aleena]: Um, what?
[james28909]: check is is data or hash or array and do tasks then return needed data
[Lady_Aleena]: james28909, you might want to look at the other two on my scratchpad.
[james28909]: after you send to a sub, you can check if it is array or ref ect with ref
[james28909]: check if it is a hash or an array ect with ref in one sub.
