in thread Database in Perl

There are so many free, good quality, general purpose database products around I have to wonder why you would want to write another - unless you have some ground breaking search or index algorithim. Most database engines are written in C, for performance reasons, and may even have assembler in some performance critcal areas.

Perl is used as an interface because most database engines have a C interface, and a wrapper can be written using the Perl-C API (that is XS). Many other languages use C wrappers in this way, not just Perl.

[marioroy]: Lady_Aleena Yes, will post something with all the new features. Parallel with few lines of code.
[marioroy]: Yes, will do for PM. I love PM.
Lady_Aleena ponders a meditation of her own, but it would be on a far far less important topic.
[marioroy]: I'm hoping to have a release in about a week's time.

marioroy MCE isn't important by any means. Just wanted to complete this task. Hobo needed more love and MCE::Shared as well. It wasn't easy at all.
[marioroy]: Discipulus No supermario. I'm a humbled person within. Just wanted to complete this journey.
