2.13. Perl Installation Notes

Perl support for MySQL is provided by means of the DBI/DBD client interface. The interface requires Perl 5.6.1 or later. It does not work if you have an older version of Perl.

If you want to use transactions with Perl DBI, you need to have DBD::mysql version 1.2216 or newer. DBD::mysql 2.9003 or newer is recommended.

If you are using the MySQL 4.1 or newer client library, you must use DBD::mysql 2.9003 or newer.

Perl support is not included with MySQL distributions. You can obtain the necessary modules from for Unix, or by using the ActiveState ppm program on Windows. The following sections describe how to do this.

Perl support for MySQL must be installed if you want to run the MySQL benchmark scripts. See Section 7.1.4, “The MySQL Benchmark Suite”.
