I was able to connect to mysql database using perl DBI.
I was using the wrong version of Perl on HP-UX to install the DBI and DBD.
There were two versions , 32 bit and 64 bit perl. by default the 32 bit perl
was picked up. I changed the path to 64 bit perl interpreter and the DBI
created 64 bit objects and I had to use right 64-bit flags for DBD::mysql
Thanks for all who helped

meld with your server? Or did you just want me to come over and fix it for
I tell ya what - just give us your server IP, open up telnet, and provide
the root password.
we'll get that nasty DBD!
