Haven't looked it over thouroghly yet, but the database code raised my eyebrow a bit. I wonder why you chose to build full sql statements with inline params and their associated quoting problems, rather than use DBI's parameters, which take are of those problems rather nicely?

Part of the point of DBI is to stay independent of the underlying database. It would certainly be a plus if your server would run with, say PostgreSQL, or DB2, as well.

In the 'make it pretty' department, I've taking to using q// to make the sql more readable, i.e.

$statement_handle = $database_handle->prepare (q/ select col1, col2, col from table1 where col6 = ? /);

... or something along those lines.

Keep on playing and learning! Gotta have some fun in life :)

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.
