  • I was particularly excited about this too when I came across it a while back - I also found the documentation in Perl for Oracle DBAs [oreilly.com] (also available on Safari [oreilly.com]) relating to extproc to be particularly useful.

    Another option available too for embedding Perl into the database back-end is PostgreSQL in the form of PL/Perl (or PL/PerlU if installed in the untrusted form) - The current limitations of this implementation of Perl though is that PL/Perl functions cannot call each other directly and that these functions cannot be used as triger functions.
