: I am new to Perl and I need to write a script that reads a name and password from a website (that parts fine) and check if they are in an Ingres DB. Can anyone tell me how to do this or point me to a page that might help?
Typically for any type of DB access, you need to create a Perl script that connects to your database and authenticates properly.
I am not entirely sure about Ingres, but I do know that there are many good CPAN modules that let you connect to db's through Perl. Check out:

for the CPAN engine which takes you to a mirror.
