'MySQL and Perl have been around for quite a while.
They are still widely used even if the "fashion" is changing. This
article talks about these two products working together as a whole,
either on the Internet or on your local network. The provided
example is written for Unix systems, free or not, even if it can be
adapted to other widespread "systems". What this article is : a
small review of what can be done with this pair, showing ease of
use, speed, reliability, security... What this article is not :
neither a MySQL tutorial nor a Perl tutorial; neither a MySQL
review nor a Perl review. Accordingly, we'll see MySQL at work in
combination with Perl, without forgetting that "there is more than
one way to do it".'
