I have not used, but I use DBI all the time. DBI has drivers for
most popular databases, including Postgres of course. All you do is
install DBI and the Postgres driver (the Postgres DBD), then you can
connect to any machine running Postgres. I don't have the URL of the DBI
page, but go to and lookup DBI.
