PostgreSQL and Perl Interface

Dan Langille says, right after I started coding the new FreshPorts, I started to write some Perl scripts to load data into tables. The first problem was getting the Perl-PostgreSQL interface installed. I’d forgotten how I’d done this with mySQL. This is also known as the PostgreSQL DBI or DBD::Pg. The easiest way to get Perl talking to PostgreSQL is to install a port. I followed the instructions found in the FreeBSD handbook for compiling ports from the internet. The solution is at the PostgreSQL Guide webpage. At that site, you’ll find information about the Perl 5 interface for PostgreSQL, DBD::Pg. Read more.
