I've not looked heavily into it, but I know MySQL supports replication,
which might be what you need. This seems like a DB issue rather than a
programming issue. So, I would look into documentation for MySQL or
Oracle or whatever database it is you are using before trying to write
something like this in Perl.
You are using a database, right? If you are creating your own database
using perl scripts, well, then I guess it is a perl issue. :)
