SQL from a perl program

I have a program which executes the
following :
system("sqlplus login/login@password")

this logs me into an SQL session.
Is there a way I can now execute
SQL statements from the perl program?

use DBI;

This allows you to connect to the database and run whatever queries that you like.

That's right,
there is no way to execute sql statements from within the perl program.
However, you can store the sql program in a file and use
system("sqlplus login/password@machine < statement.sql");

good luck
