I want to know if Perl can be used to develop a script
that will create queries for a database system. The query
will determined by user input on a online website
the query for the database, which will be excuted to fetch
the information which will be sent back to the website to
be interpreted back into information for the user to see. The
Perl Script and the Database will operate on a Linux based
network, but the website queing the database will operate on a
remote server on a Unix based system. I have never heard of
Perl being used for automating database queries since I've been studying the langauge.
Three questions come to mind:
1.Can Perl do what I have described above?
2.Is there a database system that will understand queries
written as scripts by Perl to let me do this?
3.Is there a better way? I am still understanding the
uses of Perl.
