See the Lock Tables syntax in the MySQL documentation. Then wrap each sql query inside of something like:

$dbh->do(" ... ");

Follow up question: Does the lock cover multiple statement handles? i.e.

$dbh->do("LOCK TABLES foo WRITE, bar READ"); $sth->prepare("SELECT x,y,z FROM bar"); $sth2->prepare("INSERT INTO foo SET a = ?"); while (@ary = $sth->fetchrow_array()) { $sth2->$execute($ary[0]); } $sth2->finish(); $sth->finish(); $dbh->do("UNLOCK TABLES");
Is this correct or will $sth2 not be able to access the tables because of the lock?

Yes, I that should work... Table locking is done at the per-thread level, and I think both statement handles above exist within the same thread.
