in reply to Database Question

Your Mother already mentioned DBD::SQLite.

As you are referring to flat files, I wonder: Do you know DBD::CSV or DBD::AnyData?

What's the difference between your project and the already existing DBD::* modules?

    I don't disagree with either of the previous responses. However, when I first started using Perl, I did a lot of things that had already been done, (I did not know it at the time). I learned a heck of a lot about how things work by ignorantly repeating what was there for the taking. Frankly, I still do sometimes. It forces me to dig a little deeper and really think about what is going on. When I get stuck, I then go find out how someone who knows a lot more than me went about it.

    The advantage is that I not only know the answer, but understand the question.

    Just a word of friendly encouragement...

    it's requires no other modules. no need to install module, just it in cgi-bin and use. only require lib module in programs. easy setup and use.

      All non-XS Perl code can be bundled that way and the XS stuff can be installed normally on any of a thousand configurations.

      If this is a learning exercise, great! But the public presence makes it sound like it's supposed to be for consumption. You will not do better than the modules mentioned above because they are the fruits of some of the best hackers in perldom + years of effort, tests, and user patches and feedback.

      As long as you include and abide by appropriate license info, you can copy any open source code into your distribution. No problem!
