Check out SQL::Abstract::More, which extends the parent class with more flexible functionality (and uses named params, Blessed Be!)

So you can do something like:

my $sqla = SQL::Abstract::More->new; my $time = time; my $status = 'active'; my ( $sql, @bind ) = $sqla->select( # new users yesterday -columns => 'id, name', -from => 'users', -where => { status => $status, first_seen_time => { '>' => $time - 86400, '<=' => $time, }, }, );
$sql: 'SELECT id, name FROM users WHERE ( ( ( first_seen_time <= ? AND + first_seen_time > ? ) AND status = ? ) )'; \@bind: [ 1492373509, 1492287109, 'active' ];
As you can see this SQL builder often adds unnecessary parentheses; I don't worry about these since any decent RDBMS will optimize them away.

update: added example and then example output

Hope this helps!

The way forward always starts with a minimal test.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>

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.
