I know XML is a buzzword nowadays, and that's part of the reason I used it: practice. However, after I was done, I realized that it was probably a mistake.
As for DBI... I don't know it. I read Dominus' article on using DBI, and I found it interesting, but I didn't grasp it right away. I will probably switch over to DBI and mySQL once I learn that.
I was originally going to use a DB_File (Any_DBM, actually) database, but as far as I know, they don't allow for HoHs. If one does, I'd switch the program over. Any recommendations?
