7.6. Questions and Choices

Hopefully by now we've answered all your questions about using ODBC from Perl, except one. If you need to choose between Win32::ODBC and DBD::ODBC, which do you choose?

It's actually a reasonably straightforward choice. If you need to use more of the ODBC API than is available through DBD::ODBC, then use Win32::ODBC. Otherwise the DBI plus DBD::ODBC combination is probably your best bet.
