( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I suppose the simpliest way to say it is that the DBD is the driver to the database. If I understand the process correctly, the DBD contains the specifics for the particular database that you are trying to connect to. You need to understand both DBI and your chosen driver. I haven't pursued the "why" as much as the "how". You just need all the correct pieces or the connection isn't going to work. Have you looked at the DBI site? You can download a DBD there and get more information.

Title:
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.
