No, I definitely wouldn't say DBI:: sucks. It's a great package and makes life tolerable.

I'm just frustrated that it isn't more simple to find some obvious answers sometimes. It isn't like I didn't search the postgresql and DBI documentation and postgresql mailing list archives for an answer (and ask for help in #postgresql) - yet the only answer I could find was the regex solution!

In fact, now that I know better, it's clear that the answers to people in the mailing lists that I read themselves were also wrong. Self-education is often frustrating, but places like PM make it much easier... assuming one can overcome the fear of looking stupid for asking stupid or rudimentary questions. :)

Of course, now if anyone else has such a stupid question, they'll get the right answer here with the keywords "sql dbi insensitive" ;)

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.
