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

Here's an update on how I'm progressing with this. I took the second approach from my initial post and added the following code to my script.

#This is a function to override SQLites DATETIME('NOW'). sub my_fake_time { # gmtime() normally returns the current time but it is overriden b +y Test::MockTime to give a fake time. # Actually I am using the version of gmtime() from Time::gmtime as + it has a nicer interface. As this too overrides # Perls core gmtime() function it must be use'd after Test::MockTi +me so all the overrides occur in the right order. my $t = gmtime; # return the fake date in the same format as SQLite returns. return sprintf '%04d-%02d-%02d %02d:%02d:%02d', $t->year + 1900, $t->mon + 1, $t->mday, $t->hour, $t->min, $t->sec; }; ... # This works. DATETIME('NOW') in my SQL now returns a fake time. $dbh->sqlite_create_function( 'DATETIME', 1, \&my_fake_time ); # However CURRENT TIMESTAMP still doesn't work even though from what I +'ve read it is implemented in terms of DATETIME('NOW') # # I tried this but it doesn't work. $dbh->sqlite_create_function( 'CURRENT TIMESTAMP', 1, \&my_fake_time ); # Any other ideas?

Title:
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.
