File Loader (load the content of a file and insert into DB)by r34d0nl1 (Pilgrim)
|on May 20, 2005 at 20:08 UTC||Need Help??|
r34d0nl1 has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I'm going to develop (with your help, I hope) a loader that will receive files that will be
drop in a directory X and then will read the file, do some verifications at the content
and insert the information from the text file into a database.
What you think would be better? A script that runs every minute from crontab;
or a program running as service?
It's gonna run under unix HP UX and Perl version 5.6.1.
I also would like to see some kind of example about loaders (this one will 'talk' with Oracle);
I've never produced one before.
I wounder if you could provide me some link and directions.
Thanks since now for your help, masters.
