Bur if by "real" database you mean a genuine RDBMS then both mSQL and mySQL fail the test. One of the reasons that they are so fast is that a lot of functionality is missing from them. Have a look though, and see what you need.

DBD/DBI are wonderful tools though, and have the advantage that if you can write your UI using these then it will make transitioning to a larger DBMS next time much less painful.
