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

I am pretty sure that there is better way to do this than how I am doing it here.


#!/usr/bin/perl -w use warnings; use strict; use DBI; use Data::Dumper; use POSIX qw( strftime ); my $database = 'db_name'; my $db_user = 'user'; my $db_password = 'pwd'; my $db_hostname = 'db_hostname'; my $dbh2 = DBI->connect("DBI:mysql:database=$database:host=$db_hostnam +e",$db_user,$db_password, { RaiseError => 1, AutoCommit => 1, mysql_auto_reconnect => 1 } # +Added AutoCommit => 1, mysql_auto_reconnect => 1 while trying to make + it work ); die "unable to connect to server $DBI::errstr" unless $dbh2; my $sql2_1 = q^ INSERT INTO table_name (col_1, col_2, col_3, col_4, col_5) VALUES (?,?,?,?,?) ^; my $sth2_1 = $dbh2->prepare($sql2_1); my $grp=0; $dbh2->begin_work; while(my @row = $sth1->fetchrow_array){ $grp++; if ($grp>1000) {$dbh2->commit;$dbh2->begin_work; $grp=0;} unless ($row[3]) {$row[3]=undef;} $sth2_1->execute($row[0],$row[1],$row[2],$row[3],$row[4]); } $dbh2->commit; $sth1->finish(); $dbh2->disconnect();

notice the begin_work and commit calls, and the batching of inserts before calling commit then begin work again

as for why the placeholders(?), you did not take into account proper mysql quoting or

But even this may be too slow for 50K rows, ill be back

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.
