You should use place holders in this case, as they automatically take care of quoting:

my $sth = $dbh->prepare("select * from foo where bar = ?"); $sth->execute($userinput);
In the more general case, you can use sprintf to interpolate functions into strings:
my $sql = sprintf "select * from foo where bar = %s", $dbh->quote($use +rinput);
