I'm impressed! I tried developing on my laptop (Win2k with ISS) and uploading to linux/apache. DBI isn't cooperating yet, and Win32::ODBC -> DBI conversion after the fact is more trouble than it's worth (since most of my playing involves database operations). Someday I'll figure it out though, I hope.

On Win32 you should try ADO datbase access (really fast).
This makes converting most VB apps to Perl really easy.
Since Perl supoports OLE try this:
# create ADO auto object
$conn = CreateObject OLE "ADODB.Connection" || die "CreateObject: $!";
# connect to data source
$sql = 'SELECT * FROM my_table_name';
# build recordset
$rs = $conn->Execute($sql);
# loop through recordset
# shut down the recordset
# close the data source
