You want your client's browser to connect to your dbase and not your
That's a contradiction to 'Now i want to access a odbc database within my

with perl you do sth like this:

#my $DSN = 'driver=Microsoft Access Driver
my $DSN = 'driver={SQL Server};Server=MSSQLServer1;
my $dbh = DBI->connect("dbi:ODBC:$DSN", '','') 
                        or die "$DBI::errstr\n";

#and then standart..
$dbh->do(" update users set money = null");


Source generally starts looking realy ugly when you mix asp with
javascript ( duh, when I recall how our code used to look like when we
wrote in javascript server side, mixed with standart js uaa ).
 And also javascript is not a fully functional language, I found then most
