Description: Perl DBI driver with a self-contained RDBMS
DBD::SQLite is a Perl DBI driver with a self-contained relational database
management system. It embeds a small and fast embedded SQL database engine
called SQLite (see sqlite3) into a DBI driver. It is useful if you want a
relational database for your project, but don't want to install a large
RDBMS system like MySQL or PostgreSQL.
SQLite supports the following features:
* Implements a large subset of SQL92 (<URL:http://www.sqlite.org/lang.html>)
* A complete DB in a single disk file
Everything for your database is stored in a single disk file, making it
easier to move things around than with DBD::CSV.
* Atomic commit and rollback
The engine is very fast, but for updates/inserts/dml it does perform a global
lock on the entire database. This, obviously, might not be good for multiple
user systems. The database also appears to be significantly faster if your
transactions are coarse.
