Thanks for your reply! SQL::Abstract::More looks powerful, but that is a slightly different approach from what I would like. It seems like it's about generating complex SQL queries from a data structure.

I'm fine with using SQL itself as a DSL to describe SQL. However, sometimes a condition more complex than just parameter = ? is not known beforehand. E.g. we don't know whether user wants dates after, before, or between certain point(s), but the rest of the query is still the same. In such cases pre-written SQL is not enough. I usually end up concatenating generated and pre-written parts of query by hand. Possibly not the most efficient way, but that's what I'm comfortable with.

So I think there may be a tool that automates it by patching a pre-written query with some condition group(s). Hard to figure out what I'm really looking for... If I knew for sure, I'd just google instead of asking...

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 or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
