Is there anyway to access a database in perl without using the DBI?
(kind of a strange question I'll admit...it's for a friend who said they won't install the perl libs for the DBI on the server)

You should be able to create a raw socket connection and use that. That being said however I'm not sure the exact process. I've never had to do it and I'm sure its going to depend on the database.

Hi Maskkkk,

Other than what bitdamaged proposed, I can't think of any other way. If your friend has shell access, he/she can install the modules in a private lib. These links will help:

http://www.cpan.org/misc/cpan-faq.html#How_install_private
http://www.cpan.org/modules/INSTALL.html

He'll need the Bundle: BD::mysql modules as well as the DBI module.

There is also a Pure Perl module that doesn't need to be compiled: http://search.cpan.org/author/TIMB/DBI-1.35/lib/DBI/PurePerl.pm . I haven't worked with it at all so I'm not sure of dependencies or speed but it's sure to be slower.

Regards,
Charlie

Thanks for the help, but now that I have the help for the guy I can't seem to find him. Besides last time I saw him he told me he already had it figured out.
