    netezza database?

    What is that?

    Normally, you use DBI with a driver, like DBD::Oracle or DBD::mysql, but I never heard of no DBD::netezza -- I would ask the company for help, its probably in their FAQ

      You use the generic ODBC DBI modules. Follow the ODBC drivers install guide from Netezza to install their drivers and an ODBC Manager if you're on Linux or Unix. Then setup DBI::ODBC on your system. Then connect and execute using the DBI interface just like you would any other vendor. Pass the user, password, database, and sql. I've gotten data back as single digit, a row, or an 2Darray depending on what you assign as the return value. If I'm going to dump data out to a file, I bypass the DBI output and instead use an external table to a file because that's much faster. nzload to load. You can also use system(nzsql) to use the nzsql interface if you're just looking for success/fail output or a running something long term that may exeed the odbc timeout limitations.
      netezza is a database used in my project. If you get any further information on my query please let me know.

        That much was obvious from your question.

        Each database comes with documentation, where they answer Frequently Asked Questions, like how to interface to said database, etc, etc,

        You already have more information than I do. You just need DBI and some DBD, like DBD::ODBC, or something
