The amazing Inline module offers help here, too. Not all <math.h> functions are available in Perl (even if you use POSIX;).

Here's how to print some erf() values, for instance (a function almost certainly available in your maths library):

perl -le 'use Inline C => q{ double erf(double); }, ENABLE => "AUTOWRA +P"; print "$_ ",erf($_) for (0..5)'

You can of course write it into your modules, and use it to access you own libraries.

Other C wrapping options are XS (of course) and Swig.

[erix]: yeah... trepidation

[choroba]: if you turn off autocommit and run a prepared statement which fails, the transaction is automatically rolled back, at least in DBD::Pg
[erix]: at least, I'll know where to find the documentation :P
[choroba]: but if there's no prepared statement, there's no rollback
[choroba]: the rollback happens when deallocating the prepared statement in error state.
[choroba]: is this something that Pg enforces, or just a consequence of the Perl implementation?
[choroba]: also, does it make any sense? We run different statements generated from input structures, sometimes prepared statements are involved, sometimes not. We want the behaviour to be consistent.
