That's why I originally avoided the book, my opinion based only on the title. I later picked it up based on monk recommendations, and it turned out to be much better than I expected.

It wasn't do this, do that; It was "most do this, here's why. This is contentious, and some people do that, it's important to make a choice and be consistent." I don't follow everything in PBP, but I learned a fair amount from it and it make me examine my own practices.

[Spenser]: So, nevermind about CPAN. I give up on the downgraded angle. I'm back to fighting to install DBD.
[shmem]: please open a SoPW. At what point is the perl-DBD-mysql installation failing?
[shmem]: do you have the mysqlclient libs on that device, for instance?
[shmem]: and btw, your original questian is an XY Problem classic ;-)
