in thread Comparison, questions for Postgres, MySQL
You know... there is one thing that is either available in non-perl implementations for PostgreSQL that might make me envious of MySQL (assuming it has the feature). asynchronous queries. It galls me that the DBD::Pg driver has to fully complete the PostgreSQL query, copy the data into perl-space and /then/ you can work with it. (it might do lazy copying but that isn't the point). I'd really like it if PostgreSQL got that feature and for some uses that would be a Killer Feature. That's more a function of the existing driver though since PostgreSQL supports it, we just aren't taking advantage of it (yet). Or is there some reason that DBI can't handle aio?
