This aroused my curiosity because I have to switch some Perl programs written long ago with various flat-file data tables accessed via howe-brew parsing to something more transferable. None of my uses has more than a few hundred thousand records, and most have far fewer.
Would you care to say a bit more about your preference? Do you use the Perl DBI with SQLite? If something that reflects your views can be read elsewhere, please point.
CAUTION: I'm not interested in enflaming a huge debate about the merits and demerits of these and other database systems, their developers, companies that "own" them, etc. Just a bit of practical curiosity...
