in reply to Replacing DBI->do()

Not ignoring Corion's comments the do should be something like

my $id = $dbh->do(q{INSERT INTO person (id, first_name, last_name) val +ues(?,?,?}, undef, undef, $first, $last});

that is, do($sql, undef, @bind_values). Also, notice I removed the trailing ';'. Also, I'm guessing your id field is actually auto generated for you by the database and a sequence or something in which case you can leave out the insert of the id entirely.

Also, your assignment to $id worries me as it will not be the id auto generated by the database.

[shmem]: yes, at least for the result in @foo
[shmem]: but the results of both operations are different.
[shmem]: result := the discarded result (what's leftmost of the statement)
[shmem]: push returns the number of elements in @foo, the assignment returns all the elements in the (renewed) @foo
[Lady_Aleena]: Sanity check please? push @line, ref($list_addition ) eq 'ARRAY' ? @$list_addition : $list_addiction; # so I don't have the change existing uses of the sub.
