Perl and DBI


Now it’s time to talk about the Database Independent (DBI) module, one of Perl’s best. The module provides an easy-to-use API that’s portable across operating systems and databases. It allows you to connect to a wide variety of databases—Oracle, Sybase, Informix, MySQL, mSQL, Postgress, ODBC, and many others—and even to files with comma-separated values. Using this module you can access and administer databases from your Perl programs, combining the power of the language with the usefulness of databases.
