Perl authentication using mySQL table
I am programming an online auction application using mySQL and Perl per project requirement.
I need an algorithm/code/command to integrate perl authentication from a mySQL database table.
I want all users to connect to mySQL and authenticate with one mySQL login/password (possibly embedded in some button/ login interface) all users will be granted this initial connection to mySQL.
From there each user will authenticate further by comparing their username/password with two fields in a mySQL table (username, password)
The first process (connecting and authenticating to mySQL)is straightforward, I need help with authenticating by using the mySQL table using perl.I am new to perl and haven't found much on this approach from my resources.
