in reply to DB_File utility

If ths data is that complex, why not store it in a real (ie SQL) database where the data is much easier to maintain?

    For that matter, why not just use SQLite with Matts's DBD::SQLite? Should you need to convert to an RDBM later, all you should need to do (after the data has been migrated) is change drivers.

      And using Tie::DBI, we come around full circle to code that doesn't even need to change all that much even though initially written for DB_File. :)

      Makeshifts last the longest.

        Though having taken a look at Tie::DBI's code... I wouldn't recommend it. I don't recall why but my general recollection was not positive. It was something about the algorithmic quality.
