in reply to variable type

Hi Losing,

You have the usual way to verify if a variable is numeric, and that would be to use a regexp:
unless ($val1=~/\A[-+]?\d+\.?\d*\Z/) { #quote here $val1, for example: $val1=$dbh->quote($val1); }


I'm obviously, assuming that $dbh->quote for a DB2 connection don't quote the values correctly, that I think should happen.
