in reply to MySQL Book and PHP vs Perl

Perl vs PHP: Last I checked, DBI was just a better "low level" database interface than anything PHP has to offer, but that might have changed in the last 2 - 3 years. But most of the differences are in the ease of using safe and efficient constructs and unicode support (which is pretty good in DBD::mysql)

In any case, learning DBI or whatever PHP database interface is fairly trivial once you've got your SQL/MySQL skills up to scratch. The interfacing language isn't really that important, as far as database programming is concerned.

[GotToBTru]: by itself, yes, but used in sub pre(&;@) not so
[LanX]: &; is interpreted as a function call, but the @ has no meaning
[LanX]: OH
[LanX]: you are talking about signatures?
[GotToBTru]: yes, it turns out I am
[LanX]: http://perldoc. perl.org/perlsub. html#Prototypes
[GotToBTru]: that page, strangely enough, never mentions that construct
[LanX]: ; is for optional prototypes
[LanX]: & is codeblock @ array
[GotToBTru]: okay, that is there in the text, not in literal use in any of the examples
