( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Well, it's good to know that transferring a little vs a lot isn't a huge issue. That I did not know. I'm less concerned with my ability to pull some or all of a single object's properties than i am with the possibility of having to pull a small set of properties for say 400 objects, but then wanting a larger set of properties for 10 of them. While each object may be fairly lightweight (say a few hundred to a thousand Kbytes), i'm worried what happens when i've got to deal with objects en masse.

I am aware of Storable and FreezeThaw, but at least for the time being a relational database is best for me because it allows for robust searching out of the box, and is a platform for modeling relationships between objects.

That said though, i fully appreciate the warning about digging that hole

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 or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
