With perl, you write your script to the DBI module interface and connect
though the DBD module that is appropriate for the target database. The
only changes you need in your part would deal with differences in the
SQL syntax. If you are also providing the database too, you'll probably
use MySQL or PostgreSQL but there are DBD modules for about everything.
