AnyData

[ #9954 ]
I just discovered AnyData::Format::Weblog, which lets you search Apache logs with SQL or access them through a tied hash. Cute! I'm picturing Amazon via AnyData: SELECT ranking FROM books WHERE publisher like '%Reilly%'.

  • Oughtn't that to be done with a DBD backend, then? I was thinking there ought to be a presentation on how to write DBD backends to allow you to pretend various data sources are a relational database at one of the conferences this year; something I wish I could research and present myself, if I knew I were going to have time or be able to come. (Two big doubtfuls.)

    • Excuse me. There seems to be a DBD::AnyData [cpan.org] that I presume is just for that purpose.

      Every time I think there's a new wheel to invent, it's been done. That's one of the great things about Perl. :)
