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

I need to write an application with DBI and DBD::mysql and I am quite confident about how to do that. However in order to maximize my coding time I need to be able to do it offline. What is the best module to use as a substitute? DBD::Sponge, File, CSV? There will likely be about 5 or six tables. I had a look through CPAN but I could not really decide.
