OK...

so I'm going to make a database...

What's the best way to go about it?

I want to avoid as many 3rd party stuff as possible...

I don't need to go into detail...

Just want an idea how to start a database project...

Thanks!

First, what type of database system do you plan on using? Also I would then go to cpan.org and look at the different modules that are there.

Well...

I have access to Mysql so I should probably use that as I assume it would use less resources than trying to make my own database from scratch...

cpan is too intimidating... Too much stuff to choose from when I'm not even sure what it is I want...

Hi 69_vette:

DBI is Perl's solution to interacting with SQL databases. You can access the docs for DBI at your command line by typing perldoc DBI.

Heres the URL for the on-line tutorial for SQL. http://www.sqlcourse.com/

I would really goto cpan.org, I will also go there and make a recomendation. Modules usaually are created to save time and effort by giving you an abstracted interface to different things, such as databases,system functions, etc... Or you will eventually wind up creating one to do the same thing that someone may have already done. I will reaserch this for you and provide you a link to a module that works with MYSQL dB's.
