It is now time to talk about one of Perl’s best modules: the Database Independent (DBI) module. DBI provides an easy-to-use and portable (both across operating systems and across databases) application programming interface (API) that allows us to connect to a wide variety of databases including Oracle, Sybase, Informix, MySQL, mSQL, Postgress, ODBC, and many others, even files with comma-separated values (CSV). With this module we can access and administer databases from our Perl programs, combining the power and enjoyment of Perl with the usefulness of databasing information.
