Assuming we are going to work with MySQL database. Before connecting to a database make sure of the followings. You can take help of our MySQL tutorial in case you are not aware about how to create database and tables in MySQL database.
You have created a database with a name TESTDB.
You have created a table with a name TEST_TABLE in TESTDB.
This table is having fields FIRST_NAME, LAST_NAME, AGE, SEX and INCOME.
User ID "testuser" and password "test123" are set to access TESTDB.
Perl Module DBI is installed properly on your machine.

Following is the example of connecting with MySQL database "TESTDB" −


use DBI

use strict;

my $driver = "mysql"; 

my $database = "TESTDB";

my $dsn = "DBI:$driver:database = $database";

my $userid = "testuser";

my $password = "test123";

my $dbh = DBI->connect($dsn, $userid, $password ) or die $DBI::errstr;
