What do you want to have in your database? One table, several, many? How many columns? How many records?
Re: [PapaGeek] My first Perl Database!
If it is very simple, I might go for one of the Perl DBM modules. Straight Perl hash syntax, nothing special to do.
A simple alternative with wider possibilities is SQL Lite.
If it gets more complicated, mySQL may be an option.
There are also some free NoSQL packages worth considering.
I would consider commercial software packages such as SQL Server, Access or Oracle only if the above alternatives have serious limitations for what you want to do.
But that is only a personal opinion (or personal prejudices).
