store/retrieve data structure in MySQLby BarMeister (Beadle)
|on Jul 31, 2005 at 20:25 UTC||Need Help??|
BarMeister has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I was wondering if what I am attempting is even possible...I have seen a few references to it while searching but haven't found a definitive answer yet.
I am trying to insert/update/retrieve a data structure in MySQL. My question is what do I pass in as the value when using bind_param? I am inserting it into a BLOB data type. The data structure is an array of objects (hash refs).
So is it possible to do this or do I have to serialize/deserialze the structure first?
