perl decompress - PERL Beginners

Hi all, I need your suggestions regarding writing a perl script to decompress the data. I have an mysql table which has a field which contains data of the longblob type. What i want to do is to connect to the database server and then access that particualar table and decompress the data in the table and then store this data in some text file. I would appreciate your suggestions regarding this. Waiting for your responses. Thanks & regards Anish...

    Suggestion: Go to http://perlmonks.org and look thru the
    tutorials section, looking for database stuff.

    Here is a URL which discusses the problem.

    Start by reading the docs for DBI and DBD::mysql.

    It's hard to suggest something for decompression since we do not know
    how was the data compressed. You may want to look at Compress::Zlib.
