You can certainly store hierarchical data in a database, but it is a bit more complicated.

A simple example is a family tree -- each person entry would have two other people as their parent. These people would all be in the same table, so you'd have to do a join back on the table that you're selecting from.

[Cow1337killr]: <p>stevieb, you should leave an insightful comment at https://plugins. jetbrains.com/ idea/plugin/7796- perl</p>
[Cow1337killr]: (Oops. HTML paragraph markup not needed.)
[stevieb]: Cow1337killr yeah, you're probably right. I have communicated to the author directly, and here on his threads. It's a tremenous setup. With Devel::Camelcadedb , you get full perl debug support too
[stevieb]: so now I can use CLion with the Perl plugin and have a single IDE for Perl/C/C++. It'll make writing C/XS dists much easier
[stevieb]: Python too, but I leave work at work
