MySQL does not run on Mac OS 9. There is a MacSQL Monitor program that allows you to connect to a MySQL database via TCP/IP, and it is possible someone could use those shared libraries to build a DBD::MySQL. However, I usually just use DBD::Proxy/DBI::ProxyServer, since I am going to be talking to a remote DB anyway.

    I went and checked the MySql website and found that it does run on OS X but not OS 9. I don't know much about DBD::Proxy but I know how to read :0) I guess I have some reading to do. Thanks, Sam
      A MacPerl user wrote up a quick HOWTO that I posted on my site. It's out of date a little bit (esp. in which module versions to get), and the directions are basically the same for any platform.

    I've just noticed module DBD::mysqlPP on CPAN. It is pure Perl MySQL driver. I haven't used it myself and I don't have Mac to test it but if DBD::mysql doesn't work this one may work.
