Best Perl Option?

P: n/a
List,
Which of the may Perl Modules on CPAN should I use for PostgreSQL. I'd
prefer the fastest/most up to date module. Which is it or do I have to dig
through them all?

The latest DBD::Pg (which I think is now hosted on
gborg.postgresql.org) is probably the best choice.

David,
What are you looking to do? The basic stuff is the database connection which
can be handled by Pg.pm or DBD:Pg (DBI stuff). Authorization modules for Apache
are plentify on CPAN. I've never used any because I ended up writing my own but
they have been discussed here as well.

That's just the basics though. Don't forget you also have the option writing
your SP's in pl/perl as well. That has nothing to do with modules but has
everything to do with perl and being about to write your server side functions
in a language that your are comforatable with :)

Good luck!
