That's true but in that it's not different from Test::postgresql, as far as I can see.

From Test::postgresql docs:

new [...] If required programs (initdb and postmaster) were not found, the function returns undef and sets appropriate message to $Test::postgresql::errstr.

I think it's really only DBD::SQLite that will give you a complete package, from scratch.

( Probably one could create a package with all the bits to run a PostgreSQL instance from the binaries from the EnterpriseDB site [1], but that looks like quite an undertaking...:

(cannot run as root) http://www.enterprisedb.com/products-services-training/pgbindownload "Binaries from installer version 9.2.1" -- to use, unzip the pgsql directory somewhere, and cd into it: cd pgsql -- run initdb: ./bin/initdb -D 9.2/data -- start postgres: ./bin/pg_ctl/ -D 9.2/data -l logfile start -- run tests... -- to stop, close all connections, then: ./bin/pg_ctl -D 9.2/data -l logfile stop -- cleanup all files Hm, I don't know - possible but error-prone, probably...
