    MySQL

    Well, i'm gonna learn MySQL. I am learning perl and I think i am going ot stick to it (as opposed to php). What i'm wondering is what is a good book to learn MySQL and program for it using the DBI module in perl. I'm learning because I just signed up to hlep out with a new forum sytem that runs on perl/mysql and I don't know how to go about developing for it.

    Thanks alot

    I've found that if I need a books on programming, databases, or computers in general, that give you information that's useful in the real world, there are only really three publishers who do a great job consistantly. O'Reilly, New Riders, and WROX.

    So, you might want to consider the following books:

    http://www.oreilly.com/catalog/msql/
    http://www.oreilly.com/catalog/perldbi/
    http://www.newriders.com/books/title...sbn=0735709211
    http://www.newriders.com/books/title...sbn=073571049X
    http://www.newriders.com/books/title...sbn=0735710546

    The O'Reilly stuff on these topics might be a little dated. However, two of the three New Riders books above were published in the past two months.
