The DBI module will let you connect with a number of different databases (Oracle, MySQL, DB2, etc.)

There are other modules such as ODBC which will let you connect to databases via ODBC...

hi Raja..
It depends on the Os you are using..
if your on WinNT then you can use Win32::ODBC module..it is very convenient
Hope this helps
