in thread Why Perl does not support database access through core modules?
Yeah, but as someone who spent way too much time using SDBM and GDBM it
would be nice if the Berkeley DBs were removed from the core
Just a note: SDBM and GDBM are *not* Berkeley DB's (DB_File is the standard
Berkeley DBM in the core). And, by the way, DB_File (and the other DBM's)
are exceedingly useful tools and should stay in the core. As for DBI/DBD,
I'm for a leaner core and one or more (semi) officially recognized SDK
packages containing database, networking, templating, et cetera.
