Q&A  > database programming


Description:

I need a module that can create add edit, delete, and retrieve data. It doesn't need to use a password file or field information just place it in the file using a delimiter. I had one before that I created but it took serveral month to create and debug because of how complex it was and I don't really want to go through that again.

I have glanced at the sprite module, but i think something more robust would be VERY useful! Which is why I recently started SQLshell (sqlshell.sourceforge.net). I want a near full SQL engine on the command line that intelligently parses different kinds of flat files, joining them, whatever. Basically turning your whole FS into a RDBMS. Please let me know if you have any suggestions, as i am still in the design phase. -malloc (Dan Kelemen, perl leper)

Try Sprite.pm, which allows you to use SQL syntax against delimited text files.

And don't forget CPAN: DBD::RAM.
