in reply to Perl script to decode MySQL ENCODE() function

Don't see a CPAN module that does this explicitly. However, the SQL Server Documentation says there are very few characters encoded, and they're all covered by URI::Escape. So, untested but may work for ya:

use URI::Escape; print uri_unescape(">>>%5C %2F %3A %25 %3C %3E %2A %3F %5B %5D %7C<<<" +);
UGH... that is actually powershell documentation... Do you have an example of an encoded string?

    I changed topic I was thinking about MySQL ENCODE() function. Here is example: string test after ENCODE() =>

      Could you give an actual code example, i'm not sure what you're saying. It appears from the MySQL documentation that the ENCODE function requires 2 parameters, but you haven't mentioned that. Anyway, likely the best way is to just connect to MySQL and perform the operation, for example:

      use strict; use warnings; use DBI; my $dsn = 'DBI:mysql:host=localhost'; my $dbh = DBI->connect($dsn); my $sth = $dbh->prepare("SELECT DECODE('encodedcontent', 'secretvalue' +)"); $sth->execute; my $decoded = $sth->fetchrow; print $decoded;
        There is problem: SELECT ENCODE('test','test') returns ? but SELECT DECODE('?','test') doesn't return test but ttZ what is wrong ?
