I'm not sure what's most common, the default search order of the AnyDBM_File module is
NDBM, DB, GDBM, SDBM, ODBM, all of which probably come with your perl or linux.

Unfortunately, for Linux, there's not a lot of commercial
database software available.  Perl5 supports miniSQL which
you can get a version of free on the internet.  Go to the
RedHat site, and you'll find it.

Perl5 also supports Sybase and there's an unsupported
version of Sybase that's available for the slackware
version of Linux.  I believe it's free though :)

mSQL is really straightforward depending on your needs,
but it's not very scalable. If the job is small though,
that's what I'd recommend.

Hope that helps,

-Tony
