WL#2652: External Language Plugin: Perl
Affects: Server-9.x — Status: In-Progress — Priority: Medium
Perl routines are stored as Perl modules. Perl stored procedures are able to access the database through the standard DBD::mysql module. HISTORY MyPerl from software.tangent.org (specifically Mr Brian Aker) is also a UDF. One loads the perl interpreter, and calls it. The MyPerl 0.9 download is described as "near production" and the aggregate function call is "still under development". Brian has described the plan in some articles and talks: REFERENCES "Embedding Perl in MySQL", http://new.linuxjournal.com/node/6841 "O'Reilly presentation", http://conferences.oreillynet.com/cs/os2002/view/e_sess/2693 "Talks", http://krow.net/talks/ The PostgreSQL implementation is PL/Perl, http://developer.postgresql.org/docs/postgres/plperl.html
