DBI is my favorite. The book came from that documentation. Its docs include also a roadmap.

For other monks' opinion, see Looking for Mr. Good Documentation!.

    DBI is great, but it's source can be hard to follow at times unless you are willing to dive into the XS code, and DBI::PurePerl is not a complete DBI implementation and so somewhat hard to follow too.

    However, that said, if you can manage to get your head around DBI you will certainly learn a lot.

[Corion]: (one of my scripts simply catches high amounts and I phone people making that trade, ideally before the payment is due)
[Corion]: The sad thing is that my script sits at the end of the pipeline and can only look at the payments due today or tomorrow basically, while there are many more systems further up in the pipeline
[GotToBTru]: better late than never, I guess
