in reply to ASCII databases

Check out DBD::CSV. It's a DBI database driver that lets you use comma-separated text files as if they were databases.

    Yepp, Using DBI with DBD::CSV is fine for that job (and it does allow to use other delimiters than comma, too. I prefer "|" :-), but unfortunately it still lacks of joining data from several files/tables. That means "SELECT * FROM table1,table2;" doesn't work yet. :-/
