  • I've been thinking about implementing a _real_ RDBMS in Perl for a while. By real, I mean really relational, as opposed to the godawful crap we see today. This means no SQL, except via a portability layer.

    A good reference for what this would look like is CJ Date & Hugh Darwen's "Third Manifest" book. I don't like the syntax of their Tutorial D language, but that's not a big deal, since they themselves say that their syntax is just one possible implementation of a "valid D" language.
  • If you were very wedded to the SQL DBMS "model" (it's not a model, it's a mess), you should check out the Alzabo code. There's a lot of code in there that could be really useful in implementing a SQL DBMS in Perl.
  • I haven't really looked at the source code for SQLite, but would it be possible to re-implement it in Perl? The doc states explicitely that "Sources are in the public domain. Use for any purpose."
