I have to second use DBI instead. Also, you should get in the habit of using placeholders and binding, as they can make a huge difference on performance.

Where I'm working now, most of our old code didn't use placeholders and binding. Now that we are literally doing 1000X more transactions then when the program was written, we are feeling the pain. We've gone back and started to change all of our old code, and it has made a huge difference. Not only are we able to keep up now, but the program now responds noticeably faster then it did before. I see using placeholders and binding like using strict and warnings, you may not think you need to use them, but if you don't use them, it will come back to haunt you.

PS We use an Oracle database.

PPS We are doing this to both our perl and java code, and both languages are benifiting from using placeholders.

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.
