( [id://3333]=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

In terms of cons, (off the top of my inexperienced head)

If you use files, you have twice as many things to manage. Where you had database-handling code, you need to add file-handling code. If you delete a records, you also have to delete a file. You have to backup both the database and the files. If you had load sharing, you have to share the database and the files. In other words, twice as many things can go wrong. Also, a database adds (limited) searchability.

The cons for using the database might include increased database workload, and data size limitations.

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.
