    I'm glad to see smart people coming around to these realisations. The simple fact of the matter is that DBI makes ORMs in perl not as valuable as they are in other languages. It's a very feature rich database layer that is very capable of providing you with results in an ORM-like fashion.

    Now if hiding SQL is your thing, then fair enough - but I would suggest you (readers of this blog, not Ovid) learn SQL and embrace it, much like you learned regexps and embraced them too. And use good practices (e.g. MVC) to make sure you don't have SQL in your presentation layer.
    • If I ever got mod points here (and I haven't once since signing up) you'd definitely get an Insightful for that comment.
