in thread Database copy table with DBI

One quick question. As the data needs to be flattened to an array to insert, is there (in the general case) any benefit in using fetchrow_arrayref? I am doing a similar task to the OP, copying entire DB tables. I have used fetchrow_array, then insert the array using a prepared insert. I would benchmark the two, but in my case the fetch is from an well known online service desk tool providing instant gratification ;) and the variance in performance between runs is large enough to mask any difference between fetching @ or \@.

Cheers,
R.
