Have you tried using double quotes in mySQL? I'm pretty sure it works. And I don't think you mean 'delimiter', either. You probably mean something to do with quoting. Whatever, he should be using placeholders.

(A problem I see is that he has a ';' on the end, and if you pass that in via DBI or whatever, it'll screw things up)
OK, maybe delimiter might be the right word. I've been wrong before :)
