Wha wha what?!?!?! You haven't learned DBI yet? Unshift that item to the front of your queue and start reading! ;)

Seriously, DBI and an RDBM can take a programmer to a new level of programming. I recommend any programmer out there who doesn't know how to program with a database learn how to do so very soon. The DBI part is not hard, but setting up and maintaining an RDBM can be. Luckily, there is the wonderful SQLite and the even more wonderful DBD::SQLite that allows you to use SQLite in Perl. One of the greatest benefits of using SQLite is that you get to use SQL, and if you use DBI with DBD::SQLite, then when the time comes to migrate to a "real" RDBM, all you should have to do is simply replace use DBD::SQLite with use DBD::mysql or use DBD::Pg.

Do yourself a big favor and take some time out to learn these tools.
