in reply to Using 64 Bit Perl for Production Scripts.

I think the perception that 64 bit Perl has issues is more about specific modules than it is about Perl.

For example, Win32::SerialPort has been borked on 64 bit distributions of ActiveState for quite a while now: Win32::SerialPort Test Status

(though you can build it manually, and it works fine)

[Corion]: ... in Pg, but that would mean that I'd have to deal with credentials and stuff :)
[Corion]: In fact, the whole thing is just four simple programs, one App::scrape, another being DBIx::RunSQL, and one some glue to convert a JSON object into an SQL INSERT statement (+DBI connect/execute), so it would be an incredibly simple solution...
[Corion]: ... but that simplicity falls down due to SQLite letting me down and me being too lazy to move to a real DB. Maybe DBD::CSV can handle window functions...
[hippo]: Pg has the "trust" mechanism if you don't fancy using credentials for a trivial db.
[Corion]: hippo: Oooh, that sounds quite nice - let me read the documentation on that :)
[hippo]: https://www. postgresql.org/ docs/current/ static/auth- methods.html#AUTH- TRUST
[erix]: or compile & run an instance as yourself (not user 'postgres')
[erix]: easiest setup is to run with PG* env variables set, and a custom .pgpass files (can be a $PGPASSFILE)
[Corion]: Hmm - "trust" sounds interesting, but I have still to find whether I can restrict that on a per-DB level ;)
[Corion]: erix: Sure, but SQLite doesn't even need that :)
