Acitive Perl MySQL Modules
Message ID:
I have recently downloaded, an ActivePerl-Win32
version with DBD::MySQL modules compiled into it.  However, the core version
of perl being used is slightly out of date, ie newer versions of ActivePerl
are available.  I was wondering if there is a way to use the DBD::MySql
libraries with the newer versions of ActivePerl-Win32, ie is there a
separate library file I can download to install the libraries in the new
ActivePerl or do I have to wait for a new release of ActivePerl with MySql
modules compiled in, or can I do a simple:

use foo; or
with foo;

for some Mysql Perl Module.

My purpose for asking this question is that I want an easy way to access a
MySQL database through a Perl script written in ActivePerl.  Only simple
commands would be needed, ie connect function and a doSQLcommand function.

Any comments/suggestions/solutions would be apreciated.

Thanks for your time,
Alexander Horwatt
