I am, actually, using DBI. I'm using Postgres on Linux with Perl 5.8. What I'm trying to do is this: the script checks to see if a table exists in the database, and if it doesn't, it creates it. It then carries the name of the table in a $variable for use with inserting, etc. That's it. Thanks. --andrew: --are you looking for just a list of tables, or, are you trying--to do something with the tables (insert / update / copy / etc)?--also, what database are you using and on what platform? --you may end up installing and using a DBI::DBD module. --i am running PostgreSQL on a Linux platform ... if i can help,--just post again and i'll submit the few examples i have. --laters! -X -----Original Message-----

Subject: [GENERAL] Getting a list of tables in a database with Perl
I would like to know how I can fetch a list of existing tables in a database within a Perl script. Could someone please tell me how this can be done, or, at least, a good reference to look it up? Thanks.
