How How To Connect to a SQLite database using Perl Language?

When you want to make use of the small database for desktop then the SQLite3 is the best option that you can get. You can connect to this database using the DBI module just like you do with the postgresql and the mysql. So here we are going to take a look at simple example for the sqlite3 database.

use DBI;

Add this line into your code. And then when you wish to connect to the sqlite3. Check this statement.

my $dbh = DBI->connect(          
    "dbi:SQLite:dbname=mydb.db", 
    "",                          
    "",                          
    { RaiseError => 1 },         
) or die $DBI::errstr;

Along with the call to the database it creates the database named the mydb. So here you may notice no username and password is being sent in the query. This is the best part that you don't need details for database. So from here you can check the video for the working example.

Hopefully the video shows you how to connect with the sqlite3 database using Perl.
