DB2/Pearl
We have been requested by one of our customers, to
inquire about running PEARL scripts aganist DB2 V5R1.

Is anyone willing to share some of their experiences
using PEARL with DB2. Since we have no clue about
Pearl, we are looking for any basic setup information
that may be required for DB2. Such as, any ptfs,
release level of DB2, ddf definitions, TCP/IP, etc...


Thanks
Jack

Jack,

I've not used Perl (note : no a : it stands for "Practical Extraction and Reporting Language' or 'Pretty Eclectic Rubbish Lister') on DB2 for OS/390, but extensively on Unix (AIX, Solaris and Linux). In fact I'm
preparing a presentation on this at present for IDUG.

I'd be glad if you could share your experiences of building Perl on OS/390.

I'm not sure that DB2 for OS/390 is natively supported on DBI and DBD::DB2 (it's designed for DB2 UNO).

I suppose one way you COULD do this would be using a DB2 Connect gateway and actually RUN the scripts on Unix or WinDoze.

Some sites you may find useful -

www.perl.org
www.perl.com
www.software.ibm.com/data/db2/udb/perl/

Any questions about any of the above just drop me a line.

Jack,

I am using perl/cgi on a sun/solaris machine to sever up webpages from my
DB2 for OS/390 database using DB2 Connect. What exactly are you looking
for?
