which can take up quite a lot of memory during script execution
Why can't you use a Database DBD::SQLite

    I am not using a database and I don't want to, because the application is supposed to be easy to install and I want to limit the amount of 3rd party products involved (aiming towards all perl :D )

    Since Tie::Persistent seems to be buggy and was last maintained in 2002, I'll probably switch to SDBM_File or so.

    Perl help me.

      SQLite is a Self Contained RDBMS in a DBI Driver
      Installing DBD::SQLIte is just like Installing any other perl modules
        It's a good idea, and probably faster than Tie::Persistent. However, the package needs to compile some libs, and I want my application to be used by normal Windows-Users also (who don't have a compiler installed). Is there a way I can pre-compile it and let the end-user skip the compilation part when installing it? Hm.., the ppm of ActivePerl does that. Maybe I should use that for Windows-Users.

        Perl help me.
