DBI really quick question
Message ID:
CPAN is running exremely slow (as per usual) and I just have a quick 
question.  How do I CREATE a database from within perl with MySQL? Generally 
the first command you give for DBI will be a statement to connect to a db, 
but what if I have to have the db created first?

This is for a script that will automate the installation of a set of 12 
scripts, and sets up 6 tables, and I don't want to have to tell users to 
first have to run mysql, type in "create database blah", quit, and then run 
the script.
