Personally, MySQL is the way to go if you are creating a database. You will
need to get MySQL (www.mysql.com) and from CPAN you will want to get the
DBI-1.18 and Msql-Mysql-modules-1.2216 modules. This will allow you to
connect to the MySQL database from Perl. Also good MySQL clients are
MySQL-Front (www.download.com) for windows or MysqlTool (www.icewalk.com)
for linux. The clients make is really easy to create a database and tables.
Hope that helps,

Subject: [PBML] Simple Database for Email Addresses
Databasing newbie here... I've been trying to learn how to do data driven
sites without much luck, but I came up with a simple DB design idea that may
make the learning go better.
Can anyone tell me how to set up a simple, yet non-flat-file, database for
storing email addresses?
I was planning to use MySQL with Perl or PHP. The table might be as simple
as a few columns for first/last names and email addresses. If I can simply
get it so people can upload their email addresses to the DB from off of the
web (a far cry from scanning a db and manipulating data relationally), then
I think I should knock a big hole in my ignorance.
Any help much appreciated.
