Interpolate binds into SQL on error - DBI subclassing

Description: Here's a minimal subclass of DBI that illustrates how to subclass and adds interpolated binds to errors (i.e. it replaces SQL placeholders with the bind values). This isn't necessarily how your DBMS "sees" the statement, but it does give you a cut-and-pasteable approximation.

update Added Corion's fix to support questions marks in the bind values.

package MyDBI;
use base qw(DBI);

package MyDBI::db;
use base qw(DBI::db);

package MyDBI::st;
use base qw(DBI::st);

sub execute {
    my $rv = eval { $sth->SUPER::execute(@binds) };
    return $rv unless $@;
    my $errmsg = $sth->errstr;
    my $err    = $sth->err   ;
    my $stmt = $sth->{Statement};
    @binds = map {
        unless DBI::looks_like_number($_);
    } @binds;
    $stmt =~ s/\?/shift @binds/eg;
    return $sth->set_err(
         sprintf "Execution Error: %s\nReconstructed SQL=\n<\n%s\n>\n"
               , $errmsg, $stmt

    This snippet will fail if the interpolated values themselves contain question marks - I would go for an eval-replace in the inner loop:

    for my $b(@binds) { $b=$sth->{Database}->quote($b) unless DBI::looks_like_number($b); }; $stmt =~ s/\?/shift @binds/eg;
