Well thats one idea. I presume though you'd need the psql client installed on your PC. Your answer is ingenious but not Perl :-)

If you spot any bugs in my solutions, it's because I've deliberately left them in as an exercise for the reader! :-)

    You would need much more than psql (which in fact you do not really need); you would need a running postgresql server to talk to. The talking would be done via DBI.

    But again; not really recommended for the OP (or I would have made a DBI example), just a demo for fun :)
