I am making a web server that logs to a access database through ODBC, the server itself works fine, but when I paste in code that I know works PERL just crashes.

Answer: ODBC and Sockets (can they function at the same time?)

Since I have little to no info on the matter, I can answer your question.

Yes, Sockets and ODBC can work together. Many times you may connect to your Database using Sockets.

As far as your problem, I'm affraid I can't give very good suggestions without more information.

  • Perhaps your program can't find/get a connection to Access?
  • Maybe the path to perl is wrong?
The possibilities are endless.

Be more specific and we can try and help you with your problem, perhaps you should post to 'SOPW'
