Perl is a widely used and well known scripting and reporting language. Perl stored procedures have been available for many other database system for a long time but they are now available for use with MySQL.

See how easy it is to write a Perl stored procedure – no knowledge is required of the server internals and no need for cumbersome compile and build processes.

See how easy it is to generate dynamic SQL queries from within your stored procedure.

With greater flexibility than the native SQL stored procedure, you can return complex resultsets to the user, simply and easily.
