It is defintely the right way to go. As the above post says, ignore our discussion about DBIC vs bare-bones DBI and just take a look at the many examples for Perl/database interactions on the web. If you know SQL, you will find that Perl DBI will simply give you a way of issuing those SQL queries from within a Perl script and capturing the results for further processing, which is what you need. It may sound more tricky than it actually is.

[Lady_Aleena]: Updating things can be fun, if there is a better way to do it.
[Corion]: Lady_Aleena: Mostly, it's just housekeeping, but it inspires me about things I could do with it, so that's good ;)

[Lady_Aleena]: I need inspiration.
