    Perl can pretty much work with any database available. http://www.cpan.org will have all the database modules there.

    Yes perl have database support for the most common database types, like oracle,mysql,postregsql and so on. For that you have to install Perl-DBI and then install DBD for the specific database type... You can also build simple GUI:s in Perl if it was that you wondered.

    For access to MSAccess or MSSQL data sources, you will need to use the ODBC interfaces. If you are running perl on MSWin platforms, you can use Win23::ODBC. You can use the Perl ODBC libraries on either MSWin or nonMSWin platforms.

    See the O'Reilly "Programming the Perl DBI" book for a discussion of the relative merits of each.
