( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Hello dear esteemed monks,

Sometimes I wish I could do something along the lines of

my $sth = $dbh->prepare("SELECT, f.baz FROM foo f WHERE f.???"); $sth->execute({ bar => 42});

I.e. pass a hash instead of individual values (thus ??? instead of just ? for 1 value). Also I want to be able to write

{ var => (value > 5) & (value <= 10) }

instead of a single value, specifying a complex criteria that would unfold into a proper WHERE statement (or part of it).

I was able to create a prototype module implementing (to some extent) the latter and minimally the former. However, maybe there's an already existing solution on CPAN? The size of DBIx:: namespace is far beyond my comprehension, so I seek help here.

Looks like SQL::Abstract does something similar... Are there more precise matches? And yes, I love the ability to write SQL queries by hand (or ask a DBA to), it's just substitution of criteria that I find inconvenient.

Thank you, and hope you have a nice day!

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.

  • 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).
