For about 6 months now ive had MySql on my computer and i want to use it in conjunction with perl but after searching through meaningless and not-working modules ive gate up after 1 month.
So now i need some tutorials on how to use MySql with Perl. Thanks.

The DBI module and the MySQL DBD module are definitely what you need here.
They're very widely used and certainly work just fine. There's very little point in trying to make your own module to do the same job as these.
This (http://www.cpan.org/modules/00modlist.long.html#ID7_DatabaseInt) is the appropriate section in the CPAN module list for what you want to do here. More specifically you'll need this module (http://search.cpan.org/search?module=DBI) and this driver (http://search.cpan.org/search?module=DBD::mysql) for it.
If you're having any trouble installing them, just say so and people will be happy to help I'm sure.
