Unless I am mistaken (which actually happens quite often) DBI is the
base modue that perl uses.. the extension of that DBI::Pg (which is
called in the script) is postgres specific.  That is what I am using and
I am new to postgres but have been working with perl for 3-4 years and I
have found it very easy to use.

Hi all,

I have used pg to connect to postgres.  However, I have seen a lot of
people use DBI.  Are there any advantages/disadvantages in using one or
the
other for connecting to postgres via perl.  Also, which one is more
widely
used?  Thanks for your input.
