for the beginner Perl programmer - complete simple database tools in one CGI
99.5% of all database needs can be met by a simple flat ascii file managed by a Perl CGI.
Problem is, 75% of those simple needs get lost in grandiose schemes to implement the functiionality of a scalable yatta yatta yatta. People pull their hair out, installing everything from DBI, DBM, and MySQL to Oracle -- all to kill a fly with a sledgehammer.
BDB is a simple way to create, manage, update, read, and edit a database online, all combined in one easily configured script.
