Projects / DB_Browser


DB_Browser is a CGI tool for developers working with any relational database supported by Perl::DBI. It easily facilitates searching, editing, and adding to tables within a database. While it can be used as a regular interface to database data itself, it works well as a supplemental tool for developers creating their own primary interface.

            Didn't compile with warn on windows98

            This program is a great idea, but it's highly advisable to start all cgi scripts with:

            #!/usr/bin/perl -w

            use strict;

            These two things end up saving a lot of time, and help with mod_perl porting.
