This sounds. . . interesting ;)

Is this a CGI app or a client/server app? If CGI, I take it this app is installed multiple times in multiple places? I'm just wondering why you need to have the different code. By using DBI, you can make it easy to switch between various databases and not have to change any code. Behold my untested (simple) example:

if($dbms eq "mysql") { $driver = "mysql"; $db = "test"; $user = "root"; $pw = ""; } elsif($dbms eq "mssql" { $driver = "ODBC"; $db = "test"; $user = "sa"; $pw = ""; } my $dbh = DBI->connect("DBI:$driver:$db", $user, $pw, { RaiseError => 1});
If you don't want to use ODBC, you might consider using DBD::Sybase. Haven't tried it, but SQL Server is derived from Sybase, so you might have some luck there.

Is this what you're looking for, or am I completely misunderstanding?

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
