in reply to newbie asking for perl connection with Databases

Hi Adam,

Some monks have given you the basic answer to this question already; I can see that you're after more learning resources. Good for you. As a starting point, I'd recommend:

Simon Cozens's article on, introducing the way Perl deals with databases
The O'Reilly book 'Programming the Perl DBI'.

You'll find that Perl's DBI module, and the MySQL module that goes with it, DBD::mysql, are all you need to get Perl and MySQL working together - it's not worth looking at things like phpmyadmin or whatever, they're not really relevant.

For more info on installing modules, you need to find out about something called 'cpan' - search the site here, on Google and at, and you'll find a load of useful info.


Best wishes, andye

    Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
