My recommendation: use a real SQL database if it's available. You'll need to write some administration scripts for easy manipulating the database, but that's not too hard (Maybe only submitting raw SQL Queries to the database).

Working with databases is extremely easy with Perl, thanks to the DBI. The DBI manpage is at least a good tutorial on the module only. I've read "Programming the Perl DBI", so I'm unable to give you other ressources, for i've never needed any apart from the book and the manpage...

Some more Pros for mySQL:

  • fast
  • extensible
  • Learning SQL is good and you're likely to need it sometime, so learn it now...
  • DBI is a powerfull tool. Learn to know it now and you'll be able to use it in future projects.
  • The time you spend now learning the stuff will be spared as soon as you need the features a flat BerkeleyDB can't give you.

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.
