Which database are you using? It makes a difference - I started down the road of using one of them (don't recall which anymore - this was long before I found PM), then found it didn't work with DB2 - and there was no plans to support it. So I had to abandon that module. I've not had the time to go back and revisit that decision.

    Huh? Well, the project I’m using this on must run on MySQL (despite my own choices), and I have some code that uses SQLite. I was going to be using it with PostgreSQL at some point. I don’t see how any of that matters though, since the module leaves the queries entirely up to you.

    Even though I've not tried DBIx::Simple with DB2 personally, it really shouldn't matter what database you are using as long as it's supported by DBI and has a DBD::* driver. FWIW I know it works with MySQL, Oracle, and Sybase.
