my $config = Config::ApacheFormat->new; $config->read( '/path/to/config.ini' ); my $block = $config->block( Database => $database_name ); my $dbh = DBI->connect( (map { $block->get( $_ ) || '' } qw( sid user password )), );

What's so hard about that? And, before you worry about loading the code of a config fileparser ... compare that with the cost of performing an extra database query. I think you'll be (un)pleasantly surprised.

Or, think about it this way - when so many people are telling you something, isn't it worth a day to test it out?

Being right, does not endow the right to be rude; politeness costs nothing.
Being unknowing, is not the same as being stupid.
Expressing a contrary opinion, whether to the individual or the group, is more often a sign of deeper thought than of cantankerous belligerence.
Do not mistake your goals as the only goals; your opinion as the only opinion; your confidence as correctness. Saying you know better is not the same as explaining you know better.

I shouldn't have to say this, but any code, unless otherwise stated, is untested
