Brothers, 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 ) VALUES ( ?, ? ) ); 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?

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
