  • Would you mind if I add this script to the docs as a getting started example? One of the regular complaints I get is people saying while it's trivial to install, they still have no idea how to use it.

      You're absolutely welcome to use this code or a modified version of it. I think the Term::ReadLine stuff might confuse some people. Maybe not. I've only recently come to enjoy the wonders of this module.

      I'm surprised just how compliant SQLite is. It seemed to handle natural joins well. I didn't try LIKE statements, but I've got a larger dataset with which to experiment.

      SQLite appears to be an excellent solution for those standalone perl applications that need a robust data store.

      MySQL is still my preference for larger web application applications, mostly because of its speed, admin tools and developer mind share. I flirted with PostgreSQL, but found it a bit slow and ackward to maintain (how's that for flamebait? :-)

      Thanks for popularizing and extending DBD::SQLite, Matt.
