There are not that many gotcha's writing cross platform especially when you stay within the realm of Perl (not using system specific things like sendmail). DBI is the way to go, I have scripts that run on several flavors of Unix and Win with the only change being the connection string to the database. I believe also the latest version of MySQL does support transactions (not sure about subqueries), but by using DBI you can use MS SQL on the windows box and "something else" on the *nix boxes. Or access the MS SQL server box from whatever platform you run the scripts on.

Mod_perl is most likely something you want to investigate for your VM.

good luck

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
