Re: DBI bind output vars by column name
in thread DBI bind output vars by column name
Thanks for the tip. Since posting that snippet and poking around gmax's stuff I've learned a few things that I know I could have used in the past (and probably will in the future)
However, the code I wrote was to solve a different sort of problem. Because of the mapping, I can pass $bound_fields directly to the node_create() method of an object to create a fully-populated object without calling a whole bunch of setters.
Also, since the script this code is in is used on several systems, querying several databases, the $RESULT_MAP is actually built from a config file to accommodate creating the same type of objects from tables with several different schemas.
