RE: database printing

RE: database printing

Try the DBI module.  Look up the perldocs on it to learn how to use it.  If it's not installed, you can get it from CPAN. (perl -MCPAN -eshell, install DBI)

If you only want to perform read/write operations and don't care about performing selects and other relations, then you can simply write it to a text file.

keep the rudder amid ship and beware the odd typo

RE: database printing

if your database is a perl written database (.pag) try
dmbopen(%main,'main',0666); #to open the database file
     #"main" being the database
dmbclose(%main); #to close the database file
