OpenBase DBD

on Oct 18, 2001 at 17:07 UTC ( #119669=perlquestion: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Siddartha has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I have been developing Perl scripts on Mac OSX Server, and want to connect to an OpenBase Database. I can't seem to find a DBD anywhere. I know I can install MySQL etc., but I like the OpenBase interface and would like to connect to it, since I use the Database for WebObjects development as well.

Any comments or other possible solutions will be appreciated.

    I hate to suggest it, but all i can find is DBD::ODBC. Maybe you could Write a new one, which would help the next person to ask ... but that, as they say, is a non-trivial excersize.

    Update : I found a reference to DBD::OpenBase hereand the resume of the person working on it here ... appears a DBD is in the works.
    i had a memory leak once, and it ruined my favorite shirt.
      Thanks for the reply.
      I found a few other references but all of them are about people struggling to get anything to work.

      I think I will try to get another DB to work first before I write a new one.

      Have anyone had any experience with Perl and DBI on Mac OSX Server?

      Any replies would be welcomed.


      I have managed to install DBD::mysql and everything is working perfectly.
