    I'm surprised more people don't know that you can actually write entire stored procedures in PostgreSQL using Perl. This is pretty neat - you can open cursors and navigate through them using all the common idioms in Perl we know and love (map, grep, etc).

    Also, on a similar note: Pg 7.2b4 was released this week, with mucho performance improvements over 7.1... Should blow MySQL out of the water real soon now :-)
    • There is something similar like that for MySQL, though I can't say how good it is. It's still early in development, called myperl [].
