I see that there's a
on my potato system, but that might not be what you need.

from my perspective (jaundiced, spoiled and tainted, at the very
least) you <"[SHOULD]"> be able to get by with


at least that's how it works with postgresql (DBD::Pg.pm) and
mysql (DBD::mysql.pm)...

seems to me that with perl and the right DBD::*.pm, YOU are the

DEBIAN NEWBIE TIP #20 from Will Trillich <will@serensoft.com> 
What TERMINAL TYPES are available for "export TERM=xyz"?  Look in
/etc/terminfo or /etc/termcap and pick one similar to your
terminal emulator's capabilities. Common ones are "linux" (for
console), "xterm", "vt102" and "rxvt". See "man terminfo" or "man
termcap" if you're determined to learn the nitty-gritty.
