in reply to To DBI or not to DBI

There is DBIpp that is a Pure Perl DBI, which is almost as fast as the C/XS version of DBI. You can check the dbiusers archives for an actual quote of testing numbers. There is also a Pure Perl DBD::mysql driver. These Pure Perl versions would be easy to ship, 'C' compiling. Not that this would be used for your product, there is also the dbish which gives a Oracle sqlplus type interface to a db, it will work with any driver(DBD::?) installed. Check out dbish on search.cpan.org. There is one being developed outside of DBI, which will eventually be part of the DBI dist, that has more features. The DBIpp and DBD::SQLite could be shipped with the product, although I don't remember if DBD::SQLite is pure perl , you can also check out DBD::AnyData.

    Thanks for the heads up.

    I've been reading the CPAN article about DBI and just now realize that DBI is not written completely in Perl. This may pose a problem for my generic Perl script for all Unix platforms. It appears that the list of supported drivers for the pure perl version is much smaller. I'll have to look into this more.

    Thanks again,

    Richard
