Subj:   Re: Where can I download a copy of TeraPerl ?
From:   Geoffrey Rommel

Sorry to be late on this one, but I believe the original poster was asking about "teraperl", which is not the same as DBD::Teradata. Just to clarify:

- DBD::Teradata is available from the developer for a fee, as mentioned before.

- DBD::ODBC is a free Perl module, available from CPAN, as mentioned before. It is a little slower than the other alternatives, but it largely insulates you from changes to the underlying interface. Both of the above require DBI.

- teraperl is a fairly complex module, written partly in C, that creates a Perl package called PCli. It was written by someone at NCR. It seems to be somewhat old; the documentation mentions a manual from 1991. I have a copy of it, but I have never really divined its secrets. It was given to me at no charge, but I'm not sure whether I have the authority to send a copy to someone else.

You could also write your own Perl module, of course. If you write to me directly (grommel -at- sears.com), I may be able to say more about that possibility.
