in reply to Sorting The Date format Values without using any perl modules.

Use Time::Local to convert the dates to 'seconds since epoch' values, sort them, then use localtime or gmtime to convert back to a human-readable format. This assumes you want the dates sorted chronologically, and not by month or day number...

Or does that count as a 'Date Sort' module? ;-)

[atcroft]: abner: Do you mean something like SELECT `foo`, `bar` FROM `table_name' WHERE (( `foo` = "asdf" ) OR ( `bar` = 'asdw' )); Or something else?
[abner]: yes. i am familiar with mysql but ignorant about how to get around the fact that placeholders can only represent single scalar values.
[abner]: my $sth = $dbh->prepare(' SELECT * FROM charge WHERE cpt = ?') or die "Couldn't prepare statement: " . $dbh->errstr;
