#1: Inviting ideas for Personal database

I am planning to write a small, non-bulky, easy to use and easy to port
application for my personal use.

There is lot of information I store on Google docs like commands, key words,
directory locations, script names etc. Pretty much everything which I use
daily.

Switching from shell to Web-browser is sometimes not so convenient.

Hence I am planning to store these information in flat files with some
keyword/switch and then use my application to parse and fetch the
information I am looking for.

Is there any better approach I can use instead of flat files like some
personal db etc. One of the concern I have with databases like MySQL etc is
that I would also have to install which would become a dependency and being
honest I also dont' have that huge of a data.

Does Perl have any standard database which comes installed with the standard
package ON ALL Operating Systems.

Feel free to share your thoughts.

TIA

Parag

If the database is small, I would consider using SQLite. It stores the
entire database in a single file which makes it easy to backup and
transfer. Thunderbird and Firefox use it extensively.

I second SQLite. :) It's basically perfect for a lightweight database.

Though I question the types of information you have and what you
do with it. If it's just like configuration and documentation to
remind yourself of commands and APIs and such then I might
suggest you instead just use shell scripts/config files and man
pages or PODs and version it all with Git (possibly in different
repos). :) You can create a public repository on one of the DVCS
Web sites and make it available where ever you go. :) That way
all of your stuff is only a clone away.

For example, I try to keep all of my non-sensitive dotfiles in my
'rc' repository: https://github.com/bamccaig/rc/

This way when I login to a new system for the first time I just
clone my rc repo from GitHub and create symlinks and that fast I
have all of my personal configuration setup. :)

PK> Thank you all for pointing to SQLite. Other question I have is SQLite
and DBI part of standard Perl package or do I need to explicitly install the
modules.

PK>> Yes I also keep my personal projects on Github, most likely would keep
this one as well.

DBI and DBD::SQLite are not part of the core perl5 source distribution, but=
on
the other hand:

1. Nothing prevents people from creating Perl distributions with them inclu=
ded.

2. Even the core Perl distribution is sometimes split into several componen=
ts
by downstream distributors (like Linux distributions, etc.).

3. You can easily install them from CPAN or using different means:
http://perl-begin.org/topics/cpan/ .

4. I should note that DBD-SQLite includes the sources of the SQLite C libra=
ry,
for cases it's not available on the system, so you don't even need to insta=
ll
the latter.

You may wish to look at http://ikiwiki.info/ or similar for that.

Finally, I should note that you shouldn't prefix your replies with "PK>" or
"PK>>" because that way it seems like you're quoting someone else. Instead,
write your replies directly at the start of line

Agreed. My mistake. Thanks for bringing it to my notice. BTW I have started
using sqllite and I am really enjoying it. Thanks to all.

Hi Parag,

sqlite is nice, however you should take care that it is quite slow
with some filesystems (namely btrfs).

Any database system will react differently under different file systems...
