Relational databases are widely used. However, it is not very clear how queries written by SQL are executed by the DBMS. Don't you think we can understand the execution mechanism better by simulating the query execution using a procedural language?

I tried to translate some SQL queries into Perl programs. Although there are many methods to implement a join operation, I tried only one. However, I could implement an optimized join within 20 lines of Perl code, and I recognized the power of Perl again.
