Why do you need connect via a the socket file? Presumably your mysql instance is listening for connections on a particular port number (default is 3306). In which case, you could use the command line
mysql -h localhost -P <port> -u root --password=password nemo
which would translate in DBI to
my $dbh = DBI->connect("DBI:mysql:database=nemo;host=localhost;port=$p
+ort", 'root', 'password', \%attr);
