Well, the idea was to use the gumstix for telemetry, and pipe the data off to a separate computer that was also doing some image recognition where the results could be stored and correlated.  I was thinking of possibly using IO::socket and setting up a data stream that way, then having the other machine write into SQL -- but can Microperl use the IO::socket library?

Thanks,

Yeah, most likely.  There are actually 2 approaches you could take.

The first is to write your custom application in C, and compile it on
your host machine.  This application will need to be cross-compiled
for the gumstix.  In that case, you can first cross-compile the mysql
client library, then have your app link to that.

The other approach is to add the mysql library to the buildroot.  This
get it correctly cross-compiled.  It doesn't deal with how you'll
-use- this library.  (You'll still need to write an app that links to
it, and/or some non-DynaLoader perl glue code.)  The advantage is that
you could contribute this "buildroot package" to the greater community
:)

If the underlying problem is that you don't want the sensor data to
build up on the gumstix, there might be other approaches to streaming
it off.
