Just another perl hacker somewhere near Disneyland

I have this homenode [] of little consequence on Perl Monks [] that you probably have no interest in whatsoever.

I also have some modules [] on CPAN [] some of which are marginally [] more [] useful [] than others.

Database woes

[ #18936 ]
I wanted to start on some ideas I have for a database app, and first tried using SQLite, but I really want something that supports the DBI statement attributes (e.g. NAME and TYPE), so I tried last night to install PostgreSQL on MS XP (hey, it was free, and I'm not yet ready to wipe it and install BSD). PostgreSQL doesn't yet officially support Windows (next version hopefully), but it did say you ought to be able to build a version yourself. So I installed Msys and MinGW, downloaded the latest PostgreSQL snapshot, watched it 'make' for half an hour or so, then barf on something like 'oracle_compat.c'. Oh well, maybe I'll wait and see if another snapshot will build...
