Sorry man, i got carried away there but i become mad with the both of them and especially Animator on irc.
Yes iam trying to improve the script as you correctly noticed.

I changed it again. Here it is now:
my (@row, $gamename, $gamedesc, $gamecount); my $select = $dbh->prepare( "SELECT * FROM games WHERE gamename=$gamen +ame" ); my $insert = $dbh->prepare( "INSERT INTO games (gamename, gamedesc, ga +mecounter) VALUES (?, ?, ?)" ); my $update = $dbh->prepare( "UPDATE games SET gamedesc=?, gamecount=?+ +1 where gamename=?" ); open (FILE, "<../data/games/descriptions.txt") or die $!; while (<FILE>) { chomp; ($gamename, $gamedesc) = split /\t/; $select->execute( $gamename ); if ($select->rows) { $update->execute( $gamedesc, $gamecount, $gamename ); } else { $insert->execute( $gamename, $gamedesc, 0 ); } } close (FILE);
the descriptions.txt contains a blank line after each line of info. I dont want it to be loaded and also every time is runnign it gets doubled and doubles each time!

Anyone can see why?

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.

  • 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).
