DBI on IBM AS/400 DB2

On paper it is theoretically possible to install Perl on an IBM System i
box (aka AS400) running i5/OS (aka OS400) using some AIX shim. Apparently
it's also possible to connect to IBM's DB2 for i5/OS using the DB2
driver for the DBI.

As I don't happen to have an IBM System i box to test any of this on
does anyone know how easy this is to do? Apparently Zend makes PHP
work on AS400 and that will be the solution a friend will use unless
he can get a Perl based solution.

Has anyone any experience they wish to share...?

Thanks in advance.

Linux? Il y a moins bien, mais c'est plus cher.
