in thread Rewrite in a more compact way

Since andreas1234567 asked for a compact way, I also used a compact way to quote strings.

I know that PBP encourages q{..} and discourages '...' on "noisy" strings, but it's one of the things I don't like visually. (I do resort to other quoting constructs if it saves me backslashes for escaping, which are usually a bit confusing).

Note that your version also isn't consequent, because it still uses ',' instead of q{,}.

    FWIW, I systematically use q{} for SQL strings. It's the best I've come to that doesn't require backslashing or later changing the quotes to something else.
