Purpose

You can use the SAP::DBTech::dbm and SAP::DBTech::loader modules to access the Database Manager and Loader database tools using Perl scripts. You can use these modules on all operating systems supported by the database system.

You can use the DBD::MaxDB module with Perl scripts to execute SQL statements in the database system.

Implementation Considerations

The modules SAP::DBTech::dbm and SAP::DBTech::loader are part of the MaxDB software. For information on where to obtain MaxDB software and how to install it, see the Download section and the Installation Manual.

You can download the DBD::MaxDB module at search.cpan.org/~maxdb/.

To use this documentation effectively, you must have a working knowledge of the Perl programming language. For more information about the database system, see Concepts of the Database System.
