I need to create a simple record counter for DBman
I hope one of you Perl gurus can help me out here, or at least point me in the right direction. I'm not a Perl programmer, but I can move it about, if u know what I mean:) This could be really useful for DBman people though.
I've searched through the usual places to no avail.
Anyway. Here goes.

I need a simple script that performs two tasks.

1. displays the total number of records in say, default.db, on a web page.

2. Compares the total number of records of default.db against say olddefault.db and displays the difference on a webpage.

So, if;

Default.db contains;
cat
dog
mouse

olddefault.db contains;
cat
dog

I need.

Hugs and kisses to anyone who helps:)
Thank you

Dezire
