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

I have nothing but trouble using Sybase's 'extended' datatypes (bigint is not a 'standard' datatype for Sybase, and e.g., I run into trouble when someone accidentally defines a column as 'date' instead of 'datetime'...we also use Oracle where 'date' is normal).

I'd redefine the column as 'decimal', it has up to 38 digits of precision (so 'decimal(38,0)' for max integer precision), and you won't need all the { TYPE => ... } declarations with the separate bind_param's, you can just bind on the execute() statement.

And, the trouble happens not only in perl, but also in Sybase's 'bcp' utility, which to me is a sign that you should not use these datatypes.

  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:

  • 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.
