hummmm...I want to get data from a stored proceedure that looks simular to this...

table.func(cust IN Char, cv OUT REF CURSOR)

this returns a cursor containing the data. But I have not yet found a way to extract that data. I have tried to look it up and have only come up with the bind_param() method to bind my values to the IN paramater. Is there another method to bind a variable/array to the cursor being returned? Thanks for the help.

Check out bind_param_inout(), which IIRC is lightly documented and only works with Oracle at the moment. Good luck, I ended up scrapping the use of procedures and doing stuff by hand when I ran into these problems.

You actually have to use a package. It's very simple, but quite powerful. Have a look at - it comes with DBD::Oracle and is found in the Oracle.ex directory
