There's also a 100% Perl-licensed connector that supports both old and
new authentication:
http://search.cpan.org/~dubex/Net-Wire10-1.06/lib/Net/Wire10.pm

(It is a simpler beast than DBD-MySQL and so may not be useful in
every situation..)

Re: Authentication protocol error connecting with perl

Thanks,

I appreciate your thought.  However, I was able to install the Winnipeg
module, and I'm doing o.k. with DBI.

Also, I'm working on a multi-user system, and I'm going to have to lock the
tables.

Cheers,

Hugh

Might be useful to someone else :-).

Net::Wire10 does have a DBI component by the way, it's called DBD::Wire10.
