There's more than one way to do things

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

If I recall correctly, when I used Sybase (about 12 years ago) I used to do it like this:

my $SQL = <<EOSQL; begin insert into foo (col1, uniquecol) values (?, ?); select id from foo where uniquecol=?; end EOSQL my $ST = $DB->prepare($SQL); $ST->execute('abacus', 'S/N5842', 'S/N5842'); while (my $hr = $ST->fetchrow_hasharray) { print "ID is $$hr{ID}\n"; }

Since it's executed in a transaction, there isn't a race condition. However, you *do* need to be able to uniquely identify the row without using it's ID--by using a unique (group of) column(s).


When your only tool is a hammer, all problems look like your thumb.

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.
