On Win32 you should try ADO datbase access (really fast).
This makes converting most VB apps to Perl really easy.
Since Perl supoports OLE try this:
#!c:\perl\bin\perl -w use OLE; # create ADO auto object $conn = CreateObject OLE "ADODB.Connection" || die "CreateObject: $!"; # connect to data source $conn->Open('Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=accessDB.mdb +'); # query $sql = 'SELECT * FROM my_table_name'; # build recordset $rs = $conn->Execute($sql); # loop through recordset while(!$rs->EOF()) { print $rs->Fields('my_field_name')->Value; $rs->MoveNext(); } # shut down the recordset $rs->Close(); # close the data source $conn->Close();
