[San-Diego-pm] Perl & MySQL

There are several free databases you could use.  If the SQL commands
you've written aren't very MySQL specific, you could translate it to
many other DBs without much difficulty.  If you've got a lot of MySQL
specific extensions to SQL in your commands, then it might be more
difficult.  I'd look at SQLite, and see if that supports your needs.
If not, there are several others that could meet your needs, but it's
hard to say without a better idea of what your applications needs.

Also, I'm CC'ing the rest of the San Diego Perl Mongers list, as I'm
sure many of them have some more experience moving from MySQL to other
