Background - I'm using PerlDBI to interface an Oracle database with a ConnectDirect remote file transfer. It's all basically working, but here's the problem...
We receive a file via connect direct of potentially large size and with embedded quotes/apostrophes etc. I'm therefore inserting the file content into a CLOB field in the database after using the PerlDBI 'quote' function on it - again, all working.
my $RawContent = dbh->quote( $filecontent, VARCHAR );
my $insert_sql = qq(
INSERT INTO Received
( RawContent, Filename )
( ?, ? )
my $insert_sth = $dbh->prepare($insert_sql);
my $rv = $insert_sth->execute( $RawContent, $filename );
However, when I look at the data content in SQL Developer, or when I then perform a 'select' on the table to extract the data later, it has enclosing quotes i.e. I don't get " CONTENT " - I get " 'CONTENT' ", which then interferes with string matching downstream.
What have I missed?
