This doesn't free me from adding a TO_CHAR to every timestamp column which is cumbersome if you have to replace every "select * " with an explicit list of all columns.

True, but at the moment I don't know enough about Pg to suggest any better solutions than the ones I already have. As for the Perl solution, note it's possible to detect date/time columns by inspecting $sth->{pg_type} (in my code I use a regex like /^(?:datetime|timestamp(?:tz)?)$/i). For other database typesdrivers it's $sth->{TYPE} (I don't think this is standardized). And a comment in terms of future-proofing the code, SELECT * only makes sense to me if you're using selectrow_hashref or one of its variants, and otherwise, using query builders is useful too; Mojo::Pg provdes easy access to SQL::Abstract.

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.
