Select COUNT in MySQLby Anonymous Monk
|on Jun 09, 2005 at 08:01 UTC||Need Help??|
Anonymous Monk has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I want to find the quickest possible way to count the number of rows in a mysql db.
Heres part of my code that returns this "ARRAY(0x1ae8674)"
I also tried using print $crows, but then it says it requires global symbol @crows.
What am I doing wrong?
Since this code and sql statement will only generate 1 row returned with 1 column--would selectcol_arrayref be better then selectrow_arrayref ?
