I'm guessing you are trying to assemble SQL; if this is incorrect, please provide additional context, since knowing what you are trying to pass to what is key to debugging your interface.

If you are using DBI, it's much easier to use placeholders because the interface will handle the escaping. This will also reduce security risks and will make your code more maintainable. Your code might look something like:

my $sql = <<EOSQL; SELECT * FROM G WHERE VAL1 = 'Y' AND G.FEAT_TYPE = ? EOSQL my $query = $dbh->prepare($sql); $query->execute($ftype);
or, if you want something more dynamic,
my $sql = "SELECT * FROM G WHERE VAL1 = 'Y'"; my @args = (); if ($flag) { $sql .= ' AND G.FEAT_TYPE = ?'; push @args, $ftype; } my $query = $dbh->prepare($sql); $query->execute($ftype);

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.
