Sorry man, i got carried away there but i become mad with the both of them and especially Animator on irc.
Yes iam trying to improve the script as you correctly noticed.

I changed it again. Here it is now:
my (@row, $gamename, $gamedesc, $gamecount); my $select = $dbh->prepare( "SELECT * FROM games WHERE gamename=$gamen +ame" ); my $insert = $dbh->prepare( "INSERT INTO games (gamename, gamedesc, ga +mecounter) VALUES (?, ?, ?)" ); my $update = $dbh->prepare( "UPDATE games SET gamedesc=?, gamecount=?+ +1 where gamename=?" ); open (FILE, "<../data/games/descriptions.txt") or die $!; while (<FILE>) { chomp; ($gamename, $gamedesc) = split /\t/; $select->execute( $gamename ); if ($select->rows) { $update->execute( $gamedesc, $gamecount, $gamename ); } else { $insert->execute( $gamename, $gamedesc, 0 ); } } close (FILE);
the descriptions.txt contains a blank line after each line of info. I dont want it to be loaded and also every time is runnign it gets doubled and doubles each time!

Anyone can see why?
