It's possible, but not usually worth the effort. If you want to do it, what you need to do is read in the SQL file and split up each statement. Pass each statement to $dbh->do(). Something like (untested):

# read foo.sql into memory open my $fh, "<", "foo.sql" or die $!; my $sql = do { local $/; <$fh> }; # split on ; at the end of a line my @commands = split /;\s*\n/, $sql; # run each command $dbh->do($_) for @commands;

It's not perfect - it will break if you have a comment that ends in a ";" for example. Usually it's better to just shell out to the MySQL shell to load a whole SQL file:

system("mysql -hhost -uname -ppass db < foo.sql") == 0 or die "Failed: $?";

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.
