Hah. This is simple - use a hash for storing prepared statements. Untested pseudocode:
while (my $line = FILE) { analyze $line to extract ($table, $value) pairs foreach ($table, $value) pair { my $sql_statement = "INSERT INTO $table VALUES(?)"; my $sth = store_or_retrieve($sql_statement); $sth->execute($value); } } my $sth_hashref; sub store_or_retrieve { my $sql_statement = shift; if (exists $sth_hashref->($sql_statement)) { return $sth_hashref->{sql_statement; } else { my $sth = $dbh->prepare($sql_statement); $sth_hashref->{$sql_statement} = $sth; return $sth; } }
However, I would suggest you probably have more work to do regarding your database structure - do you really only have one row in each table?

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.
