wertert has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I've been given a quick task to perform which involves updating a database on a server. I have little or no idea how to do this and I need to get it done today. The main problem is that i've been given a non-perl code snippet ( VB )
sub open_conn ' Connect to the Onepoint Database for a list of all hosts dim strConnect: strConnect = "Provider=SQLOLEDB.1;Data Source=iblons3 +506\oi_c1_prd4;Initial Catalog=OMDPortal;User ID=OMDPortal_General;Pa +ssword=oBfuScaTed;" set oConn = CreateObject("ADODB.Connection") oConn.Open strConnect end sub
which is what is currently used and I want to perform the same thing with perl. If anyone could point me in the right direction i'll buy them a beer. Jeff
