Marsouinian database

Had a bit of a play with a Marsouinian SQL database today, and was pleasantly surprised.

The thing’s obviously grown up in The Real World, with lots of esoteric little statements available for quickly & conveniently getting Real Work done.

Oh, yes — several of those are usefully bound to little command-line tools, so one can achieve much Real Work without even cranking up a database client.

That and a single-line urpmi command to install the server, client & numerous tools endears the little blighter to me (yes, it would be the same in apt-get or yast or yum or whatever).
