About the Author

Andy Duncan is a psychology graduate and inveterate software dabbler who lives in Oxfordshire, England. He was the initial author of the Orac open source tool for Oracle database administration, development, and tuning. After a spell with Sun Microsystems in the late 1990s, working on Java-based software delivery systems, Andy began a period with Oracle Corporation in 1998 as an Oracle DBA contractor, at their central EMEA Data Centre in the U.K. He remained there as a senior DBA through the January 2000 hurdle; he then returned to Sun as a Perl and Java web consultant, moving away from database administration and back into full-time software development. He now combines various Internet projects for different clients with leading commercial Perl training courses for Learning Tree. He can be reached at
